Energy efficiency is an important subject for the entire Ottakringer Group: their aim is to continually reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.The Selectiva battery charging systems from Fronius use the Ri process to charge each battery according to its age, temperature and state of charge. This minimises energy loss, which in turn reduces energy consumption, while the gentle charging process also lengthens the service life of the batteries.
Together with the fleet management team, Fronius evaluated further potential savings using the I-SPoT Viewer analysis tool. The fixed assignment of batteries and battery charging systems has been replaced by a variable battery pool. The Selectiva devices show the forklift truck driver which battery has been charged for the longest and therefore is the coolest, extending the service life of the batteries even further. Furthermore, Trinkservice has been able to reduce the number of back-up batteries needed, producing significant cost savings.
