Uppsala University Hospital

The Uppsala University Hospital will be expanded by 60,000 new square meters of hospital space by 2022 and rebuild another 80,000 square meters. In this project, Logiwaste delivers the system that automatically manages and collects hospital waste and laundry in both the new and existing premises.

As part of the construction project, the old environmental station has been rebuilt to meet both current and future standards in environmental management. The new environmental station also includes the terminal for automatic waste and and laundry collection.

The system Logiwaste supplies include a terminal for both waste and laundry handling, the pipe system and approximately 50 inlets through which staff can easily and conveniently throw bags of waste and laundry.
The waste and laundry are disposed of in separate inlets. In the terminal, the waste is compressed in containers to give a high collection rate and minimize the number of transports from the terminal. The laundry is collected in two laundry separators and then automatically distributed into laundry carts with the help of belt conveyors before further handling.

The development of the hospital is part of an effort to continue providing a safe and secure care of the highest quality for patients. The automatic collection of waste and laundry is part of this and contribute to a hygienic environment with greatly reduced handling of bags in the corridors and wards.
