Revamping of Newrest catering unit at the airport in Mauritius

South africa

Newrest, a new actor in inflight catering in Mauritius

Olivier Sadran, Co-Chairman and Founder of Newrest Group: “Earlier this year, we acquired a catering facility in the country. Right from the start, we had the ambition to do the necessary investments to drastically improve the sustainability of our operation. Mauritius is a natural setting to be preserved for the generations to come. We have our role to play in the country’s transport and tourism equation. It is also our responsibility to provide an efficient and safe working environment to our team.”

A 360-degree approach

Following a thorough review of energy consumption, an innovative approach to energy transition has been taken with the investment on NEMO GREEN. Via a digital platform, Newrest’s management team can track energy consumption for multiple pieces of equipment and area within the facility. Corrective measures and training can be carried out immediately after a deviation is identified.

This is combined with a shift to led lights, the installation of outside solar lights and the use of solar panels for a new purpose. Energy efficient equipment replaced existing ones.

“From roof to ground”, key statement of the unit makeover.

Starting from the roof:

  • A more efficient HVAC positioned on the roof together with new extraction towers from the hot kitchen drastically reduce energy consumption and improve air quality for the team.
  • 25 solar water heaters are now connected to the water network limiting the use of diesel water heaters.
  • A first for the group, the use of a reflective sealing system cooling the building while ensuring the waterproofing.
  • Existing solar panels already produce part of the electricity needs

Within the facility:

  • Installation of cold room and insulation panels throughout the catering unit for better working conditions and permeability to dust and insects
  • The famous Newrest’s green anti-slip floor replaced old floor tile for better work safety
  • A brand-new dishwashing system generates important water and detergent consumption savings

This investment is part of an important revamping and construction campaign initiated by Newrest in 2022 following the publication of its CSR charter in 2021.
