Automation of cleaning services at Madrid’s Adolfo Suárez Airport


Automation of cleaning services at Madrid’s Adolfo Suárez Airport
Ferrovial Services has recently started providing cleaning services for terminals T4 and T4 Satellite at Adolfo Suárez – Madrid Barajas Airport.  The service covers the cleaning of public areas (check-in and arrivals), controlled access areas (AENA offices) and restricted access areas (boarding and baggage reclaim), amongst others.

Automation for improved efficiency

One of the distinctive characteristics of this contract are the automation systems introduced by Ferrovial Services. Ferrovial uses two types of innovative devices: robots for automated window cleaning in difficult-to-access inner areas, and robots for automated floor cleaning. This allows work to be automatically programmed, using multi-area memory. Use of these devices will provide a 50% reduction in costs and a 60% reduction in the time required for carrying out such work. It will additionally allow the service frequency to increase by 33%, and this improved maintenance will extend the useful life of infrastructure.

Ferrovial Services’ experience at Adolfo Suárez – Madrid Barajas Airport

Ferrovial Services started working at this airport in 1997, when it provided signage for the buildings comprising terminals T1 and T2. In 2003 it was awarded the contract for providing static and dynamic signage for the terminal, satellite and parking buildings at T4. It currently also provides winter services at the airport, removing ice and snow from 8 million m2 of paved surfaces.
