Eröffnung eines neuen Camps in Afghanistan

Nach nur ca. 2,5-monatiger Bauzeit nahm das neue Camp der Ecolog AG in Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan, am 1. Oktober seinen Betrieb auf. Bis zu 70 Personen, sowohl Mitarbeiter aus dem europäischen Raum als auch lokale Arbeitskräfte, können hier auf einer Flächen von 10.000 Quadratmetern komfortabel untergebracht werden. Bei Bedarf lässt sich die Aufnahmekapazität problemlos erweitern. Ein besonderes i-Tüpfelchen stellen zehn Unterkünfte für VIP-Gäste dar, die bei „hohem Besuch“ erstklassige Beherbergung garantieren.

Mit modernster Technik ausgestattet hat die Wäscherei des Ecolog-Camps Vorzeigecharakter. Eine Startausrüstung von 40 Waschmaschinen, etwa 70 Trocknern, drei Großwaschmaschinen und zwei Großtrocknern ermöglicht dem Wäschereipersonal, mit Wäschemengen jeder erdenklichen Größe fertig zu werden. Derzeit werden 700 Wäschebeutel pro Tag gewaschen, getrocknet und hygienisch verpackt. Eine Ausweitung des Maschinenstands ist allerdings bereits geplant.

Höchste Hygienestandards sind eine Selbstverständlichkeit in Ecolog-Camps: Die Wäscherei in Mazar-el-Sharif verfügt über getrennte Wasch- und Faltbereiche. So wird eine Vermischung von sauberen und verschmutzen Sachen strikt vermieden – jede Person kann sich eines optimalen und hygienischen Reinigungsservices sicher sein. Auch Krankenhauswäsche wird separat behandelt und in einer räumlich abgesonderten Abteilung gereinigt. Eine leistungsstarke Abluftanlage, die die warme Abluft der Wäschetrockner aus dem Gebäude bläst, sorgt für ein angenehmeres Klima im gesamten Wäschereibetrieb.

Darüber hinaus zeichnet sich das Camp durch hohes Lagerhaltungspotenzial aus. Ca. 500.000 Liter Diesel sind hier vorrätig und minimieren die Gefahr von Treibstoffengpässen.

Doch nicht nur das Ecolog-Camp in Mazar-el-Sharif zeigt sich von seiner besten Seite, auch das in der gleichen Region gelegene Camp Ecolog 2, mit einer Quadratmeterzahl von 4.000 auf 8.000 vergrößerbar, wird derzeit „fit“ gemacht. Neben der Müllverbrennungsanlage, die zwischenzeitlich aufgebaut wurde, soll in Kürze zusätzlich eine Recyclinganlage entstehen. „Alles in allem hat die Ecolog AG wieder einmal bewiesen, dass es sich lohnt, in Zukunftsprojekte zu investieren. Davon profitieren unsere Kunden und es ermöglicht uns, zu einem funktionierender Umweltschutz einen Beitrag zu leisten“, so Kaan Savul über die jüngsten Aktivitäten der Ecolog AG.

New Camp Opens in Afghanistan

Ecolog AG’s new camp in Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan, began operations on October first after being under construction for only about two and a half months. With its area of 10,000 meters it offers comfortable lodging for up to 70 persons, European and local employees combined. If need be its capacity can be increased without difficulty. “Icing on the cake” is represented by the accommodations intended for up to ten VIP guests, who are guaranteed first class lodging during high-level visits.

The Ecolog camp’s laundry, with its ultra-modern equipment, is a model of its kind. Its initial set of 40 washing machines and 40 dryers, accompanied by three large-scale washing machines and two large-scale dryers, permits the laundry staff to handle any conceivable amount of washing. Currently 700 sacks of washing are washed, dried and hygienically packed each day. However, an increase in the number of machines is already planned.

The highest standards of hygiene are a matter of course in Ecolog camps. The laundry in Mazar-el-Sharif has separate washing and folding areas, thus strictly guaranteeing against any mingling of clean and dirty items. Each individual can be certain that he or she is receiving the best and most hygienic laundry service possible. Hospital laundry is handled separately, being washed in a physically separated area. A powerful ventilation system that expels from the building warm air from the dryers ensures a more pleasant temperature in the whole laundry.

The camp is also notable for its high storage capacity. Some 500,000 liters of diesel fuel are available here, thus minimizing the risk of fuel shortages.

But it is not just the Ecolog camp in Mazar-el-Sharif that is a showpiece. Camp Ecolog 2, which is located in the same area, and which can be expanded from 4,000 to 8,000 square meters, is currently being upgraded. The trash incinerator that is currently being constructed is to be joined shortly by a recycling facility. “The bottom line is that Ecolog AG has once again demonstrated that it is worth while investing in future-oriented projects. Our clients benefit, and we are able to make a meaningful contribution to environmental protection”, says Kaan Savul about Ecolog AG’s most recent activities.
