The Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani on Wednesday visited the Research and Development Center at Barzan Holding Company affiliated to the Ministry of Defence at their headquarters in the Qatar Science and Technology Park to inspect the production lines for the manufacturing of Savr-Q ventilators.
During the visit, the Amir listened to a briefing about the production lines of the Savr-Q ventilators.
Barzan will produce the ventilators through a strategic partnership with the American company, Wilcox, in order to cover the health sector’s requirements in the country, and to export them in light of the increased global demand for the treatment of those affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The company is estimated to produce 2,000 devices per week.
The Amir also met with a number of Qatari engineers at the centre who are working to produce devices that comply with the standards of the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The production of ventilators by Barzan Holding Company comes in response to the Amir’s directives to the Ministry of Defence to contribute to the measures taken by the country in combating the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Amir was accompanied by Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al Thani, and a number of ministers and senior officials.
