UP AND AWAY: SASSE AND ICE INTRODUCE ROBOTICS AT LUTON AIRPORT

Luton Airport (LLA) has received certification from the Airports Council International (ACI) Health Accreditation programme.

The LLA is the first in the UK to receive the certification, which provides airports with an assessment of how well their health measures align with worldwide standards and industry best practices. 

Sasse and ICE have worked alongside the airport to introduce robotic cleaning and sanitising equipment into their daily operations. The companies believe this has contributed to the accreditation and that passengers and staff can be confident of the utmost cleanliness and hygiene levels throughout the airport.

With the introduction of the Co-Botics range, supplied by ICE, a partnership between automated robotics and human operatives has allowed Sasse to completely redesign its cleaning concept at Luton Airport. 

A significant number of hours were previously consumed with operatives using scrubber dryers. Now, with the introduction of automated robotics, vast areas of the airports flooring are cleaned whilst unsupervised. The digital link between the Co-Botics technology and onsite supervisor allows the cleaning operatives to communicate via a smartphone. Once cleaning is complete, a report is generated for complete transparency whilst the Co-Botic machines await further instruction.

Shannon Murnane, Office Manager for Sasse at LLA said: “The introduction of Co-Botics at LLA is a smart move for Sasse and the cleaning operation at London Luton Airport. This innovative technology is here to assist the cleaners who continue to re-focus their attention on high value tasks such as washroom hygiene and the cleaning of touchpoints.” 

Mark Bresnihan, Managing Director of ICE said: “We would like to congratulate LLA & Sasse on their accreditation and are delighted that they share our vision and long-standing belief in the benefits that automated cleaning can bring.”
