United Biscuits is using EnerSys's Hawker Motive Power batteries and chargers for its forklift truck fleet at its Midlands distribution centre in Ashby de la Zouch.

The installation includes a call-forward battery management system and a special battery handling arrangement. It has brought improved battery housekeeping and significantly reduced the risk of cell damage, thus extending battery life.

EnerSys has refurbished the two battery charging areas in the warehouse. One is for counterbalance trucks, where the batteries are charged using overhead cranes. The other is for reach trucks and pallet transporters and uses a Hawker ProSeries Tugger battery change cart. This powered, manually operated vehicle uses an extending electro-magnetic ram to transfer batteries between charging beds and the trucks.

The charging areas have Hawker Powertech high frequency chargers and battery management systems. Diagnostic software in the Powertech chargers transmits data to large call-forward display screens to indicate the order in which batteries should be retrieved.
