The laundry at “Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire” de Lille (CHRU) started operations in 1983 with a capacity of minimum 18.000 kg of linen per day, mainly via tunnel washers. In 2007, they relied on the Electrolux Professional Barrier solution to process all laundry not compatible with Continuous Batch Washing.
In the context of COVID-19, the CHRU decided to disinfect all linen potentially contaminated by the virus in separate Washer Extractors before washing some in the tunnels.
Due to the rapid increase of volume, there was an urgent need of a third 70 kg Barrier Washer. The Electrolux Professional team ensured availability and transport of equipment in time while the CHRU completed the seamless workflow from onloading the truck to installation and water connection. Our technical partner GSCE enabled the « go-live » of operations on April 3rd
