"A Linde electric truck with Lithium Ion battery is the optimal choice for us, both in regard to driver comfort, user friendliness, sustainable technology and most important cost efficient material handling operation”
N.C. Nielsen is delivering the Lithium-ion batteries to Ferrosan Medical Devices, offering customers own developed and produced batteries for its customers with intelligent Battery management solutions from Lithium Balance:
“Our in-house developed Lithium-ion batteries are tailor-made for every specific solution. We carefully calculated that the Lithium-ion batteries reduce the operational costs to as much as 1/3 of the cost of conventional battery types. They last longer than other battery types, can be opportunity charged and finally they are maintenance free. It doesn’t get much simpler, when speaking battery technology. We have very high expectations to the Lithium-ion batteries”- Says Technical Director and owner Per T. Nielsen from N.C. Nielsen.
At Ferrosan Medical Devices the production is optimized and made efficient through the ideas formulated in the “LEAN-thinking” concept.
This means that both production, internal material handling and stock operation is optimized to a very high degree to achieve specific targets to reduce unnecessary operations (waste). For that reason, the intelligent Lithium battery is equipped with a datalogger, which connected to the internet:
“With a BatAnalytics datalogger we are able to monitor the remaining capacity of the battery. We can closely monitor all the different battery parameters on our internet portal in real-time and thus we are able to see, how the battery performs at any time during operation. It is important for us to see how the Lithium-ion performs and that we can document the efficiency of the operation against the set targets”, -Underlines technical manager Jørgen Skov from Ferrosan Medical Devices.
At Ferrosan Medical Devices the ”green change” is a declared part of the company CSO policy – especially relating to reduction of CO2 emissions.
In this context the Lithium-ion powered Linde truck is an integral part of the change:
“We need to set a green standard in our choice of battery and material handling equipment. It really makes a difference that the Lithium-ion battery is not harmful to the environment. It doesn’t contain any toxic heavy metals such as batteries did before and Lithium-ion batteries can be re-used and recycled in order to avoid that any dangerous substance ending up in nature”.
These are also important factors to Jørgen Skov, Technical Manager at Ferrosan Medical Devices.
