Bucher Leichtbau and SkyTender Solutions joining forces Unique beverage dispensing galley insert coming to market
Bucher Leichtbau and SkyTender Solutions joining forces Unique beverage dispensing galley insert coming to market March 29th 2016 Bucher Leichtbau AG (Bucher) and SkyTender Solutions AG (SkyTender) signed a partnership agreement to launch a unique innovation enabling airlines to significantly improve on-board beverage service and drinking water quality while reducing maintenance and waste treatment cost.
Zürich, Switzerland and Frankfurt, Germany:
The new solution, “SkyDrinx”, builds on SkyTenders’ mobile beverage trolley, which uses a post-mix system to produce and serve high quality flavored hot, cold and carbonated drinks with a single command of the touch screen right in front of the passenger. Combined with Bucher’s extensive light-weight construction experience and galley know-how, the new galley insert will be developed suited to ARINC standards.
Together, the mobile trolley and the galley insert, represent a complete system to cover on-board beverage services for all passenger classes and types of service, including self-service beyond regular service periods on-board. The system also encompasses tracking and reporting, thus providing complete transparency of consumption data as a valuable basis for forecasting and order management.
SkyDrinx can draw its’ water either filled on the ground after purification or from the on-board water supply by means of a sophisticated leading edge filtration system.
„Our unique system ensures optimal usage of resources along the entire supply chain,“ stated SkyTender CEO, Hanns R. Rech. „Through optimization of weight, space, waste and over-catering as well as elimination of beverage packing, it adds a new dimension to airlines‘ continuous strive for carbon footprint reduction.“
