Plant for Production of Disinfection Units to Open in Dimitrovgrad Industrial Park "Master"
With the support of Governor Sergey Morozov, an agreement was signed on 2 June between the Agency for Technological Development of Ulyanovsk Region and OOO "RP Korall-Simbirsk" to join the Innovation Cluster of the region.
The document validates the intention of the parties to participate in implementation of cluster projects, to provide participants of the association with comprehensive support and to promote development of the region's innovative potential.
"The cluster already includes 52 companies, both industrial and high-tech ones. Participants get access to state support measures, as well as the opportunity to engage international partnership and to develop projects faster and more effectively," - said Vadim Pavlov, Director General of the Agency for Technological Development of Ulyanovsk Region.
The event's official part included presentation of the UltraOzon project, an apparatus used to stem the spread of wide range of viruses that a person carries on clothes, shoes, hair, etc. According to the developers, the disinfection unit can be applied in all spheres, especially in high-traffic places; for example, in shopping centers and production facilities, at train stations.
“The demand for disinfection and personal protection products has scaled up massively. In the early days of the pandemic, we were faced with a shortage of these goods; the Governor set the task to launch the necessary production line and to repurpose companies. As a result, many furniture and textile businesses began to sew face masks and medical overalls, and many companies that manufacture washing agents started to make antiseptics. Today, the Ulyanovsk region also produces disinfectants, including the ones for streets, public transport and facades of buildings. And now we are going to create large devices that can be used at trading facilities' entrance points, at organizations and large-scale production facilities. We are interested in such companies coming to the region and will support them,” - said Ruslan Gainetdinov, Chairman of the Board of the Entrepreneurship Development Corporation of Ulyanovsk Region.
The production facility will be located in Dimitrovgrad Industrial Park "Master"; the company is planning to start work on 20 June.
“Human safety and the effectiveness of the method are the main features of this project. We have already received the first orders from other regions to install our devices in schools and hospitals. At the initial stage, we are going to manufacture up to 500 items per month,” - said Yury Gvozdev, Director of the company.
