Groundbreaking ceremony for a new Schottel logistics centre

Schottel GmbH is expanding its rudder propeller factory in Dörth by adding a logistics centre of around 4,000 m2.

Construction has already begun. Due to scheduling reasons, the ground-breaking ceremony has now symbolically taken place in front of the backdrop of the already started shell construction. The total investment volume amounts to €9.5 million [ds_preview].

According to Schottel, the construction work by the general contractor Goldbeck is on schedule: Columns and the first exterior walls give an impression of the volume of the 2,634 m2 commercial space.

In the future, an efficiently designed goods delivery system, crane systems and a fully automated warehouse will provide state-of-the-art warehouse logistics here, according to the client. The foundations for the adjoining office wing with 1,326 m2 of usable space are currently being laid and construction of the three-storey building is due to start in the spring. Regular operations are expected to commence in the first half of 2025 once the building has been accepted and set up. This will merge the currently duplicated warehouse logistics for goods from new plant production in Dörth with those of the spare parts business from Spay, 30 km away.

Schottel increases new construction business

According to the company, the new construction business has increased significantly in the first few months of this year: More than 350 large and small systems will be manufactured in Hunsrück in 2024 for shipyards in the global maritime centres. With the orders for the Wismar plant, more than 500 drives are on the order books with delivery dates until the end of December. There is also an increasing demand for spare parts in after-sales: around 10,000 ships worldwide are powered by Schottel – sometimes with one, sometimes with up to five drives.
