ZenRobotics' latest technology to play central role at new, fully automated sorting centre in Geneva
ZenRobotics Ltd. and Sogetri, part of the Helvetia Environnement Group, have agreed on a delivery of robotic waste sorting systems to a new state-of-the-art waste sorting facility that will be built on Sogetri's existing site in Satigny, Switzerland. The construction of the new facility that will process more than 70.000 tons industrial waste annually will begin in June and the centre is expected to be operational in March, 2019.
Sogetri, established in 1997 in the canton of Geneva, is the primary waste processor in the Romandy region (in Western Switzerland). ZenRobotics' robotic sorting systems will be a central part of the new, modern, fully automated sorting facility. Sogetri dozens of jobs will be created as a result of the new facility. On the sorting line, the robots will mainly take on the toughest tasks, such as sorting large pieces weighing up to 30 kilograms.
"We are very excited about this project as the facility will be a modern facility that relies on the newest technologies," said Juha Mieskonen, ZenRobotics Head of Sales. "We are happy that our robotic sorting technology can support our customer in realizing their vision of a future-proof process."
Sogetri says they believe firmly that the robotization of sorting and recycling will continue. In the future the company sees potential for additional fully automated sites, as technologies evolve and more complex sorting tasks become possible.
