The “Kaercher Cleans Monas” project began on 2 April 2014 with the signing ceremony for the cooperation between Kaercher Indonesia and the Jakarta Provincial Government. The agreement was signed by the General Manager of Kaercher Indonesia, Roland Staehler and Vice Governor of Jakarta, Ir. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, MM at the City Hall.
The cleaning project as such kicked off with a thanksgiving and prayer organized by Kaercher Indonesia, Jakarta Provincial Government, Monas Management, the Culture and Tourism Office of Jakarta Province on May 5th.
Ardianta Rahardja, Technical Project Leader in Kaercher Indonesia’s Team, led the team of up to 20 people cleaning the entrance area of Monas using several hot water high pressure cleaners HDS 6/14 C for the building and the stairs along with some scrubber driers BD 530 Ep for the floors
The tower part was cleaned by three specialists from Germany led by Thorsten Moewes who worked together with his colleagues Sebastian Burg and Lars Neuser. Sebastian and Lars used rope access technology every day between May 8 and May 15 to descending from the top of Monas.
The project was closed with an event called “Monas Fun Cleaning Day with Kaercher” which was attended around 500 people from many communities who join the efforts to clean the monument on Thursday, May 15th, 2014. Kaercher Indonesia aimed to raise awareness for the importance of a clean environment and showed visitors how the cleaning of Monas progressed.
