Stockholm-based underground automated vacuum waste collection specialist, Envac, has secured its largest tri-system contract with Hainan Cancer Hospital, an international centre of healing and research in Haikou City, China.
Under the deal, estimated to be worth almost €3.6 million, Envac said that it will install a system to the general waste of over 11,000 staff and patients, as well as the laundry of the 1200 bed hospital.
The company added that the vacuum waste collection system will also form a key component in helping the hospital to achieve the ‘Luban Award’, a prestigious award for design and construction in China.
The development will integrate Envac’s general waste system, its linen collection system, which will transport laundry around the entire site, and the Kitchen Waste System throughout the hospital’s 230,000 m2 build area.
A general waste system will also be connected to the hospital’s staff quarter.
In total the three systems are expected to transport almost 13 tonnes of waste from the site’s 628 waste inlets each day throughout a pipe network that will span almost 2.7km.
