The Ronavi H1500 logistics robot was tested in a robotic multi-level storage warehouse with an automatic electric stacker. The project was implemented in August 2020 at the site of the digital logistics space of the Gazprom Neft Moscow refinery.

The H1500 robot manufactured by Ronavi Robotics (part of the TechnoSpark Group) is designed for autonomous operation in pallet or shelving warehouses. The robot delivers the cargo to the static order collection area and takes it back, thus increasing the productivity of the human employee 5-8 times.

“Recently, we have been increasingly receiving requests for production logistics robotization, when it is necessary to transfer cargo from one production site to another, or to the warehouse of finished products without human participation. The robot allows to save the employees serving this site from routine operation,” said Ivan Borodin, Director of Ronavi Robotics.

During the tests in the Gazprom Neft logistics space a situation was simulated where an battery-powered piler pulled a pallet out of the parts storage area and transported it to an intermediate point on the cargo table. From there, the Ronavi H1500 RMS-operated robot, with the integrated MES/WMS, transported the pallet to the endpoint, in the set-off area.

Ronavi Robotics (part of the TechnoSpark Group of the Investment Network of the RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs) is the first Russian company to develop, manufacture, and sell robots for independent operation in warehouses. Serial production of the AMR H1500 was launched in 2019 at two industrial sites—in Troitsk (Moscow) and Eindhoven (Netherlands) at the capacities of VDL ETG—one of the largest European engineering companies.

The area of the new logistics space of the Moscow refinery is 15 thousand square meters. The digital space combines an automatic warehouse, storage system, and other robotic technologies.

Warehouse robotics is actively being used in the world, and the use of AMR is one of the main areas of implementation of robotics. Amazon’s warehouses use more than 200,000 of these robots. Little by little, the trend towards warehouse automation is beginning to be noticeable in Russia. There are already the first introductions; for example, robotic warehouses operate in Russia at IKEA, Miratorg, and the increasing number of large market participants are conducting relevant tests.
