New Mexico based, Build with Robots announced that it has deployed a fleet of BreezyOne disinfection AMRs to both the George Bush Intercontinental and William P. Hobby Airports in Houston, TX.

The BreezyOne is an aerosol disinfection mobile robot built on top of the Fetch Robotics AMR base. Each individual unit is capable of disinfecting 150,000 square feet per hour. This makes it an ideal solution for large, expansive, public space like an airport terminals.

“The Build With Robots team are providing us with the best tools to keep our passengers, employees, and stakeholders safe. We appreciate this valuable partnership,” said Traci Rutoski, PMP, CM, ACE, Manager Custodial Services, William P. Hobby Airport.

The BreezyOne is fully autonomous, which means that it can easily be programmed to operate during the overnight hours, after the janitors have cleaned the facility, and while no one is present. The onboard disinfectant fogger creates a fine mist of disinfectant that coats all surfaces in the room.

The solution leverages all of the autonomous capability of the Fetch Robotics AMR platform. It is easy to setup and map a new facility, then define the operational paths for the disinfection operation.

The system has obstacle detection and will not run into anything in its path, even if the environment changes from time to time.

The solution also provides a full reporting feature that enables facility managers to manage the system and ensure that disinfection operations are completed.

Originally developed to help disinfect facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, the BreezyOne can effectively disinfect a large public area like an airport terminal, and destroy germs for any number of communicable diseases. It is a cost effective and efficient method to disinfect large areas. The company promotes a greater than 99.99% efficacy.

“At Houston Airports, we focus on putting our team members in a position to win every day. This means having the resources, supplies, education, and training that they need to be successful. With the onset of the pandemic, we needed to explore new and innovative solutions so that when people come through the airports, whether for work or travel, they feel safe and secure. Breezy One has been a great tool in helping us achieve this,” said Sam Rea, Terminal Manager, George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

“It is always a pleasure to work with a team of innovators, and Houston’s airports are leading from the front. We look forward to a long successful relationship supporting their entire teams,” said Bryan Carey, BWR’s Lead Application Engineer for Texas.
