Savic Engineering in Kortrijk comes to the rescue of Spanish authorities
The government of Spain asked Savic Engineering to make use of its industrial dust suppression and disinfecting machines to combat the deadly Covid-19 virus. The past few days were spent testing these machines on-site, approving their use and putting them to work.
On Sunday Savic Engineering’s equipment was deployed on a large scale and to great effect to thoroughly disinfect spaces destined for the care of coronavirus victims. Public areas received a similar treatment. Savic Engineering’s Spanish dealer is cooperating closely with the local authorities and the army. Images of these operations passed around the world in recent hours (including on Flemish TV). As a result, additional requests are flooding in at Savic Engineering, located on the Evolis industrial estate in Kortrijk.
“Our Spraystream machines can generate droplets of water mixed with disinfectant in a highly controlled fashion”, CEO Mirko Savic explains. “We then use a turbine system to spray this mixture onto surfaces and through the air. The machines are controlled remotely and are suitable for fully autonomous, vehicle-mounted operation. This makes it possible to disinfect large areas quickly at the correct flow rate and dosage. Moreover, our system is set up in such a way that we can work very efficiently, without flooding the surroundings with water and with a minimum of workers. We have a large supply of equipment available that is perfectly suited to these tasks with only a few modifications, either indoors or out.”
Mirko Savic believes that he and his family business of the same name can make a contribution to public health both here and elsewhere in the world. “It’s a fact that the experience we’ve currently gained in Spain together can help facilitate implementation on a major scale”, says Mirko Savic.
