Plans for a new cold storage facility at ANC revealed

A new cold storage facility is to be developed at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC).

Alaska Cargo and Cold Storage (ACCS) will develop the 700,000 sq ft facility and intends to start work in the fourth quarter of 2021.

The facility will offer climate-controlled zones, ground source heat exchange, 500kw solar photovolatics, oxygen reduction fire suppression and three stage ammonia refrigeration.

Rob Gillam, chief executive of ACCS investor McKinley Capital, said: “We recognised the opportunity at ANC to provide new infrastructure that’s critical for shippers to make the most out of a location that’s already a strategic stop with many benefits.

“Our advanced ACCS facility will be located adjacent to the runway and it’s going to have the latest in automation and smart warehouse technology to maximize efficiency. This facility has the potential to streamline the global supply chain and the global cold chain, making ANC a global logistics hub.”

The ACCS development is the second of five proposed cargo projects at ANC.
