Celtic Cooling build large cold store for Ethiopian Airlines Enterprise

By | August 20, 2012

Celtic Cooling will shortly start building a cold store of more than 3,500 m2 on instructions from Ethiopian Airlines Enterprise at the Addis Ababa airport. Building an entirely new freight terminal is on the program for last three years and more than 1, 5 million Euros is involved in this investment. This is an enormous relief both for local growers, the government and customers in the Netherlands. The airport had a storage capacity for cooled export of flowers, vegetables and fruit for years and is now building additional capacity to solve the logistic bottleneck for the increasing export of these products.

The cold store can store the freight of three complete cargo aircraft, is cooled completely down to +2C and is provided with a modern handling system for airfreight. Celtic Cooling is an important project; normally they ship the material from a project like this in 40 sea-going containers to the country of destination. This time the complete cold store is flown to Addis Ababa, as the cargo department of Ethiopian Airlines wants to use the cold store with effect from January 2013.

For Celtic Cooling are experienced in the designing and installation of made-to-measure cold stores and freezers, cold-installations, air-conditioning systems and turnkey projects for all kinds of purposes. The company has been active in Ethiopia for ten years and has established its own office because of the service point of view.
