ODENSE, Denmark, November 19, 2020 — Skift has announced UVD Robots®, a unique brand of Blue Ocean Robotics, as the winner in the Designing Safety category for their 2020 IDEA Awards. Recognized as a leader in disinfection, UVD Robots combines UV-C technology with their autonomous robot, creating a hospital-grade solution for the hospitality industry to keep both travelers and employees safe. Skift IDEA Awards bestows UVD Robots, a brand of Blue Ocean Robotics, as the leader in Designing Safety.
“Blue Ocean Robotics with UVD Robots is honored to receive the Designing Safety recognition from this year’s Skift IDEA Awards,” states Per Juul Nielsen, CEO at UVD Robots. “The greatest advantage of the UVD Robot is by far its simplicity. A UVD Robot fits perfectly into a hotel, airport, railway or conference facility’s daily cleaning routine, working autonomously as part of the team, carrying out vitally important UV-C disinfections against harmful pathogens.”
Since 2018, UVD Robots has been actively eliminating viruses and bacteria at a success rate of 99.99% in over 60 countries. UVD Robots utilizes a proven method of light photons that inactivates harmful pathogens in both airborne and surface environments.
Claus Risager, CEO at Blue Ocean Robotics and the Chairman of UVD Robots, adds “In a typical cleaning cycle, a single UVD Robot will effectively and efficiently disinfect 30+ hotel rooms in five to six minutes per room. The travel industry as a whole is benefiting from UVD Robots and they are actively being used at hospitals, hotels, airports, train stations, shopping malls, pharmaceutical companies, cruise ships, and fitness centers.”
