Babcock says to design and build thousands of ventilators for UK

Wed 25th March, 2020 8:57pm
LONDON, March 25 (Reuters) - British engineer Babcock
International said on Wednesday it had joined forces with a
leading medical equipment company to design and supply thousands
of critical care ventilators to Britain's publicly funded health
service.
    "Babcock has joined forces with a leading medical equipment
company to design, manufacture and supply thousands of critical
care ventilators for the NHS in response to the government’s
urgent request for help from industry," the company said in a
statement.
    Babcock did not name the other company involved but said it
had also been working with London’s Royal Brompton Hospital and
other clinical experts in the field.
    "With the race against time to save lives, a fully
functional prototype with the focus on simplified ventilation
principles and thereby fewer parts has been created in a matter
of days, whilst meeting strict clinical requirements," the
statement said.
