International Tourist Village: a special holiday deserves special attention
The International Tourist Village in Bibione (Venice), founded in 1960, covers an area of 20 hectares in the heart of a country with one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline of the northern Adriatic, between Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. A 4-star property consisting of two distinct areas, one for camping and the other pleasant villas nestled within a captivating pine forest.
Quality service is the highest priority, so for their on-premise laundry facility, the International Tourist Village chose Electrolux to manage the huge amount of items coming from the restaurant, housing (sheets, towels, tablecloths) and beach/pool areas. More than 145,000 kg of laundry is washed between April and October, in addition to the periodic cleaning of blankets, duvets and curtains. Following the advice of the Electrolux Professional agency, Frigotecnica SAS, a complete system was designed and implemented and, in just two years, it has doubled the number machines installed. The laundry facility includes 7 washing machines (from 5 to 65 kg capacity), 4 dryers (24 to 65 kg capacity) and 2 ironers, the largest measuring 3.2 m in length, fully automated with feeding, folding and stacking features.
“The use of this system allows us to save a considerable amount of time, while improving the organization of our daily operations. The morning is dedicated to the sorting of the linen into separate bags, a different color for each type of fabric. The bags are then distributed between the washing machines and the appropriate washing, drying and ironing programs are activated. At the end of the day, the laundry is ready to be returned,” explains Dr. Gianni Granzotto, director of the structure. “Our experience with Electrolux has been very positive from the beginning, starting from the design/installation phase, following throughout the service and maintenance, thus significantly reducing the downtime of the machines,” concludes Dr. Granzotto.
