The Ronavi Robot of the TechnoSpark Group Has Successfully Passed Tests in the Gazprom Neft Logistics Complex

15 September 2020

The Ronavi H1500 logistics robot has been tested in a robotic multi-level storage warehouse with an automatic electric stacker. The project has been implemented in August 2020 at the site of the digital logistics space of the Gazprom Neft Moscow refinery. Ronavi Robotics is part of the TechnoSpark Group of Companies, which is part of the investment network of the RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs.

The H1500 robot is designed for autonomous operation in pallet or rack storage 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 the warehouse of finished products without human participation. The robot allows to save the employees serving this site from the routine operation,” said Ivan Borodin, Director of Ronavi Robotics.

During the tests in the Gazprom Neft logistics space, a situation was simulated where the electric stacker pulls the pallet out of the parts storage area and transports it to the intermediate point on the cargo table. From there, the Ronavi H1500 robot, operated by the RMS system that integrates with MES/WMS, transports the pallet to the endpoint, in the procurement area.
