Emirates chooses M-iQ from MEIKO


Emirates has chosen the latest range of Meiko’s warewashers for its new catering facility at Dubai International Airport. Three Meiko M-iQ dishwashers have been ordered to meet the expansion requirements of Emirates’ flight catering operations. The new catering facility comprises 60,000 m2 spread over three floors.


Says Eric Waag, MEIKO's key account manager for in-flight catering: "Emirates flight catering places a great deal of emphasis on cutting-edge systems, intelligent interface design and reliability and was looking for a solution that combines intelligent material flows with outstandingly smooth organisation."


The M-iQ system is widely regarded as a revolution in dishwashing technology, using a proprietary filter technology to allow the machines to wash for longer periods without requiring the wash water to be changed. The contract includes a longer drying zone in the machines specially tailored to Emirates' specific requirements: "The customer wanted everything to come out completely dry – even Gastronorm containers and plastic boxes – to ensure that all the key hygiene parameters were met," says Waag. Each of the three M-iQ machines is 13.5 metres long with a useful width of one metre and a passing height of 2.40 metres. The machines will be assembled on-site, though the MEIKO branch office in Dubai will work closely with the assembly and installation experts at the company's headquarters in Germany. meiko.de
