Kuredu Celebrities: Chief Engineer Sanjeewa
Responsible for keeping our island paradise running, Chief Engineer Sanjeewa Aiya is this month’s Kuredu Celebrity. Having first joined Kuredu in 2002, Sanjeewa now heads up a team of 71 who ensure that your AC keeps running, the water keeps flowing and the lights stay on during your island stay.
Kuredu’s isolated location means that all of our energy and water needs have to be met on site, with large generators, solar panels, and Kuredu’s own in-house salinization and bottling plan all need regular maintenance by the engineering team. This is especially true as the resort continues to work to reduce its environmental footprint, introducing more renewable sources of energy and replacing single-use plastics with sustainable alternatives.
Whilst the resort continues to work hard to minimise our environmental impact, Sanjeewa does believe there are a number of simple things that guests can do to help. By turning off lights when not in use, keeping doors closed (so that the AC is more efficient) and by choosing to find alternatives to plastics where possible when deciding what items to bring to the island then guests too can help us leave a small an environmental footprint on our beautiful location.
Outside of work, Sanjeewa enjoys cycling and water sports, and if he were to spend a holiday on Kuredu he would look to enjoy the water sports opportunities at Kuredu, the incredible food available in the restaurants and would savour a cold beer on the deck of a water villa.
We would like to thank Sanjeewa, and his team, for all their hard work.
