DRS seeks input on MHE solutions for DRS’ future deposit stations. Deposit stations are buildings where it is possible to return empty PET, ALU and glass returnables.
DRS’ current idea is that the potential tender for an MHE solution should include following parts:
— deposit interface (physical reception of returnables);
— separation and singulation (infeed buffer, separation and final singulation. Received bulk can contain waste that needs separation and removal);
— sorting (unit for sortation of PET, ALU, Rejects and glass).
Other parts might be considered as contractual options, with interfaces to the present MHE solution:
— aluminimum and PET Crusher (unit for crushing PET and ALU (separated));
— glass solution after sorting (handling of glass (crushed and not crushed));
— compactor (container) (standard unit for compacting PET and ALU).
DRS would like suppliers’ response to which parts they can deliver and which overall solutions they recommend.
