PIRELLI: GREEN LIGHT FOR BENTALLGREENOAK AND GSE ITALIA’S PLAN FOR A NEW 50,000 SQUARE METRE WAREHOUSE AT SETTIMO TORINESE
Pirelli will strengthen its logistics operations through the construction of a tyre warehouse to serve its industrial hub at Settimo Torinese in partnership with “BGO Logistic Fund 1”, fully invested by BentallGreenOak and managed by Kervis SGR S.p.A. and the general contractor GSE Italia.
LEED Gold certified, the new warehouse of 50,000 sqm will allow Pirelli to manage, with greater effectiveness and efficiency, the flow of tyres produced at the Settimo Torinese production hub. The highly innovative nature of the new warehouse, which will be finished in 2021, will also allow Pirelli to improve its service to clients and to reduce costs and achieve significant improvements in terms of sustainability.
The construction of the warehouse on a former industrial site, already being reclaimed, will also result in the reduction of CO2 emissions and the generation of clean energy through the construction of a photovoltaic array of 1.2 MegaWatts.
