“COVID has taken an extraordinary toll on our community. The safety of our students and staff, developing a plan to bring them all back to school as safely as possible is our primary concern,” said Gallup McKinley Superintendent Michael Hyatt. “We wanted a larger, longer-term disinfection solution, adding a layer of protection that would disinfect surfaces and the air in our buildings and help fight COVID, colds, flu and infectious diseases for years to come.”
GMCS covers a community with many rural areas facing infrastructure issues that make virtual learning a challenge, approximately 1,500 students have no internet at home. The district also educates many special education students who learn better in the classroom.
“Unlike stationary disinfection robots, the UVD Robot is a fully autonomous robot. It integrates UV-C light to disinfect against viruses and bacteria on surfaces and the air, killing 99.99 percent of microorganisms within approximately 10 minutes in every room it disinfects,” said Claus Risager, CEO, Blue Ocean Robotics.
“We selected UVD Robots after rigorous review of numerous disinfecting robots,” said Hyatt. “UVD Robots delivered on all of our requirements including technical excellence, maturity and track record, quality of deployment, technical support and maintenance, and overall value.”
“We are excited to announce, what we believe is the largest deployment of autonomous disinfection robots in any U.S. school district,” said Per Juul Nielsen, CEO, UVD Robots. “We are honored to work with GMCS to go beyond COVID, bringing hospital-grade disinfection to the school district.”
UVD Robots is part of one of the world's leading groups in development of service robots, Blue Ocean Robotics , that includes brands GoBe Robots and PTR Robots . Blue Ocean Robotics is headquartered in Denmark and was recently included on Fast Company’s Top 10 of ‘Most Innovative Robotics Companies 2021.’
