Classeq has revealed that it supplied the ice machines for the new five-storey £22m Radisson Blu at East Midlands Airport.
The hotel is billed as one of the greenest hotels in Europe as it was built to the highest environmental specifications in the UK hotel sector, meaning that even the appliances installed on the site have had to gain energy performance certification.
Jason Fish of Rotherham-based HK Projects championed the design, procurement and installation of the hotel’s foodservices operations and he specified Classeq’s machines for the project.
“It was an exciting, challenging project where we needed to specify foodservice equipment that supported the overall green credentials of the hotel. When it came to ice machines we chose Classeq’s Ice-O-Matic ICEO405F and ICEF155,” he said.
The ICEO405F is a modular cube ice make capable of producing up to 239kg of ice in a 24 hour period, while the ICEF155 is a self-contained flake ice machine with an output of 70kg of soft, chewable flaked ice per 24 hours and a storage capacity of 25kg.
Both machines feature AgION internal antimicrobial coatings to improve hygiene and prevent the build-up of harmful bacteria.
