UVD Robots Deploys Robot #200 donated by The European Commission

This week, an indoor facility in Barcelona, Spain received the UVD Robot no. 200 donated via the European Commission’s Emergency Support Instrument.

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 facilities to remove microorganisms.

The EU Commission has already donated autonomous disinfection robots to indoor facilities in 26 EU countries. With this installation at the indoor facility in Barcelona, Spain has received 24 UVD Robots from the donation scheme. These indoor areas are applying UVD Robots to help keep a sterile environment for individuals since microorganisms on surfaces are increasing problem in many different industries. 

“With EU funds, the European Commission is buying 200 disinfection robots, which will be delivered across Europe to help disinfect rooms. We do all we can to support individuals 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 predictable and cost effective outcomes in many industries. UVD Robots have already been implemented in more than 70 countries worldwide and are currently enabling facilities to remove more than 99.99% percent of microorganisms within approximately 10-12 minutes in a room. Contrary to many stationary disinfection robots, the UVD Robot is a mobile, fully autonomous robot that integrates UV-C light to disinfect against microorganisms that bring UV-C light disinfection to a higher level.

“Earlier this year we reached the installation of 100 UVD Robots 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 bringing disinfection to a higher level.
