Turnkey order for Krones AG
Augustiner-Bräu is increasing its storage capacities: right on time for the summer season of 2015, the brewery is upsizing to 46,000 hectolitres. This is made possible by building a new storage cellar, which accommodates a total of 17 horizontal tanks, installed in a steel framework.

01:13with a load of 140 tons and transfers
