Setemar reinforces its energy saving policy with the purchase of new sustainable machinery
Setemar, the multimodal logistics platform located in the facilities of Quart de Poblet (Valencia), has just acquired a new state-of-the-art reach stacker machine designed to cover the needs in the handling of empty containers. Specifically, it is a Uplifting telescopic stacker, model RSUP-10 CH, which provides a high lifting speed, as well as a complete control and monitoring system for all the operations it carries out. The new machinery has a load capacity of up to 10 tons.
Another of the great features of the telescopic stacker is that it integrates an energy efficiency system, specifically, homologated engines with low pollutant emissions, which can reduce fuel consumption and gases into the atmosphere by up to 15%. Likewise, the fact that high elastic limit steel has been used in its construction, also ensures the environmental seal without diminishing its operational performance. This implies a drastic reduction of pollution to the atmosphere per TEU moved.
With this acquisition, Setemar now has more than thirty reach stacker vehicles in its different multimodal logistics platforms distributed throughout the Iberian Peninsula (Barcelona, Valencia and Algeciras) and whose fleet is increasing.
Technology, innovation and development in machinery design
In order to offer a cutting-edge and innovative product to customers, the manufacturer -in this case, national, Huesca- has designed this machinery with advanced programs in 3D design and calculation of elements which provides not only a greater design capacity, but a total security in the result thanks to simulation systems. In this way, machinery is obtained that offers integral and personalized solutions to the needs of each company.
Alonso Group’s environmental sustainability policy
The new acquisition is yet another example of the business policy that, in recent years, Alonso Group has begun to develop in order to bet on environmental sustainability by acquiring more efficient equipment. In fact, it is carrying out a complete modernization of its different fleets, both industrial machinery and the trucks of its land division, in order to follow this line.
On the other hand, Alonso Group is carrying out a series of integrated actions within the framework of its Global Logistics Plan with which it aspires to offer its customers the greatest number of kilometres free of CO2. This is a project backed by the EU through the “Connect Europe” mechanism.
