New cold room Ethiopian Airlines Enterprise in use

In February of this year Celtic Cooling from New Vennep commissioned a new cargo terminal in Ethiopia. This terminal is designed specifically for airfreight export of flowers from Ethiopia. The existing terminal outgrew the growing capacity of exported flowers. For that reason, Ethiopian Airlines decided in October 2012 to quadruple the capacity of the cold stores. The new 'perishable cargo terminal’ is now fully used for the flower export, so that through the existing terminal exports of vegetables, fruits and herbs can take place.

Both the flower growers and the fruit and vegetable exporting companies in Ethiopia are extremely pleased with this capacity enlargement. The cold chain, from harvesting to the end customer, is important for the country to guarantee the quality and shelf life of fresh produce. With two to four full cargo flights, Ethiopia is the second largest exporter of flowers after Kenya.

Celtic Cooling specializes in the supply and installation of cold rooms, refrigeration technology and supplies the complete cold chain of its products. The cold rooms at the farms, the export cold room, the cold storage of the logistics service provider, the importer and the retailer. Through many years of experience Celtic Cooling offers the best solutions for the complete cold chain. Besides the cold store at the airport in Addis Ababa, Celtic Cooling has also carried out several projects at the airports in Bahir Dar (Ethiopia), Nairobi (Kenya), Accra (Ghana), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Liege (Belgium) and Schiphol Amsterdam Airport (Holland).
