The XXL warewashing system from Offenburg includes 23 conveyor belt dishwashers, each 4 to 8 metres long, 2 cart and 2 airline trolleywashers, peripheral conveying systems and various utensil washers. " The cartwashers alone are so huge that two persons can walk side by side through them" says Vice President Ralf Hübner. "Both trolleywashers are 25 meters long and to this day the largest and highest performance warewashers worldwide". In line with the country´s touristic development an extension of Dubai Airport is even expected in a near future.
