UVD Robots Deploys Robot #200 donated by The European Commission to European hospitals

This week, Consorci Corporació Sanitari Parc Taulí hospital in Barcelona, Spain received the UVD Robot no. 200 donated via the European Commission’s Emergency Support Instruments.


UVD Robots and Blue Ocean Robotics - the manufacturer of the autonomous disinfecting robot equipped with UV-C light - was selected by the European Commission, as a supplier for its autonomous disinfection robots to European Union hospitals.

The EU Commision has already donated autonomous disinfection robots to hospitals in 26 EU countries. With this installation at Consorci Corporació Sanitari Parc Taulí hospital, Spain has received 24 UVD Robots from the donation scheme. These hospitals are applying UVD Robots to help keep a higher level of disinfection in the environment.

“With EU funds, the European Commission is buying 200 disinfection robots, which will be delivered to hospitals across Europe to help disinfect patient rooms. We do all we can to support hospitals and patients in these difficult times. And more will follow.” said President of the European Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen.

UVD Robots provide fully automated disinfection solutions with safe, predictable, and cost effective outcomes in hospitals and many other industries. UVD Robots have already been implemented in more than 70 countries worldwide and are currently enabling hospitals to destroy microorganisms by more than 99.99% percent within approximately 10-12 minutes in a patient room. Contrary to many stationary disinfection robots, the UVD Robot is a mobile, fully autonomous robot that integrates UVC light to disinfect.

“Earlier this year we reached the installation of 100 UVD Robots in hospitals across Europe on behalf of the European Commission, and now, we have reached installation of 200 robots - which means a great deal to us.” Said Per Juul Nielsen, CEO at UVD Robots. “By reaching the target of 200 robots we are now looking forward to exceeding this number and providing even stronger disinfection measures to EU hospitals.”

Dr. Claus Risager, CSO at Blue Ocean Robotics and Chairman of UVD Robots states that "This means a great deal to us because we are focusing on helping strengthen the disinfection measures against microorganisms overall in operating theatres, intensive care units, cancer departments and similar in hospitals."
