Veolia and Incognitus delivers sanitisation service for Victoria Racing Club

In anticipation of Flemington Finals Day, Veolia's No Touch Disinfection Solution has been implemented

The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) is leading the way in a horse racing industry trial, implementing the traceable, efficient, and proven Veolia No-Touch™ Disinfection Solution.

In an Australian first, the Victoria Racing Club will utilise Ultra-Violet (UV-C) technology through the Veolia No-Touch™ Disinfection Solution to undertake a disinfection of its Saintly Place facility, ahead of the Flemington Finals Day to be held at the venue on Saturday July 4, 2020.

The solution will be applied on internal high-touch point areas which includes seating, tables and chairs, bar stools, bar and food service areas.

James Reid, Executive General Manager – Victoria Racing Club said, “Implementing the Veolia No-Touch™ Disinfection Solution via our contracted venue presentation partner Incognitus at our Saintly Place facility ahead of our scheduled race day will provide peace of mind that the space has been disinfected using the latest technology, reducing the risk that employees and visitors will come in to contact with harmful pathogens.”

Clinically tested technology, the Veolia No-Touch™ Disinfection Solution uses UV-C technology, proven to be effective against bacteria, mould and germs. The solution uses a series of mobile devices to laser-map the space to be disinfected, identifies exposed surfaces, and calculates the cycle-time needed to take effect on pathogens in minutes.  Environmentally friendly, the use of (UV-C) technology also eliminates the use of potentially harmful chemicals.

Craig Lovett, Partner/Principal Incognitus said “Throughout our 34-year partnership in service at the VRC we have always looked outside the box for innovative solutions.  Veolia once again has proven to be an excellent partner in our endeavours.  Exploring technologies which deliver timely, safe and compliant solutions means we are continuing to raise the bar for our clients.  

Daniel Paone, Veolia’s Head of Sales and Business Development - Solid Waste also said of the solution, “As Incognitus’s waste management partner at the VRC, the extension of Veolia’s services to now offer high-tech disinfection and sanitisation will be instrumental in providing a safer workplace for Owners and guests ”


How Does Veolia No-Touch™ Disinfection Work? 

Veolia No-Touch™ Disinfection system uses the Surfacide Helios® Multiple Emitter UV-C Disinfection System - Ultraviolet room disinfection system (ARTG ID 331201) which emits UV-C energy to kill bacteria and other germs. Multiple emitters (anywhere from 1 to 5) are placed in a room and through a process of laser mapping; all high touch surfaces within the room are disinfected. The multiple emitters address the challenges of shadows, distance. Depending on the size of the room, the process can be completed in as little as 5 minutes.

The digital link takes the guesswork out of the process, providing a digital record that all high-risk touch points have been disinfected. A cloud based portal provides real-time analytics to track the date and efficiency of disinfection. Emitters map and disinfect every surface in the room. Connected tablet performs range checks, monitors process and confirms completion. A Customer Portal provides comprehensive performance data.
