A new parcel sorting center for DHL Parcel, which will be responsible for the transport of half a million parcels per day, was erected at the ‘’De Wildeman’’ business park in Zaltbommel, The Netherlands. This sorting center, covering 90.000 m2 / 968.748 ft2. is the first center of DHL that will be completely gas-free. Additionally, the building will be equipped with enough solar panels in the near future to be fully self-sufficient in power. These PV systems will also generate enough energy for charging electric delivery cars and trucks.
To enable safe maintenance of the roof and the various technical installations, such as the solar panels, the assistance of our Dutch Partner AllRisk was called in. AllRisk installed a total of 1039 meters /3.408 feet of horizontal lifeline systems on the three different roof surfaces, along with 8 XSGlobe anti-pendulum anchor points to prevent swing falls. The four separate offices next to the sorting center are each equipped with a single anchor point for safe roof access.
