Denmark-based UVD Robots has announced that it was chosen by ISS World Services, a global workplace experience and facility management company, to provide autonomous robots for disinfection as part of its global offering.

The agreement between UVD, part of Blue Ocean Robotics, will allow ISS to offer hospital-grade disinfection to its more than 600,000 customers in more than 30 countries in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, life science, banking and financial services, and industry and manufacturing sectors. The company’s robots enable facilities to reduce disease transmission by eliminating 99.99% of bacteria and viruses in any room.

“As we return to work, companies need to re-establish physical connections, bringing employees safely back to work environments meeting higher hygiene standards,” said Anders Høj, director of methods & technologies, Cleaning at ISS World Services. “And they need to restore the emotional connection, building employees’ confidence in the safety of their workplaces. Being able to offer disinfection, which also includes UVD Robots is a powerful, effective way for our company to address and meet customers’ needs and expectations.”

Claus Risager, the CEO of Blue Ocean Robotics, said he looks forward to partnering with ISS. “Our robots continue to play instrumental roles in helping businesses meet requirements prompted by the pandemic and beyond, resulting in significant reductions in workplace infections while reducing the level of employees on sick leave,” said Risager. “The UVD Robot has unique capabilities to sense, document and show users how well disinfected an area is, enabling users to easily and quickly adjust the process and optimize if needed. This is a feature not found in any other UV-C disinfection robot.”
