Embassy Services Pvt. Ltd. (ESPL) in collaboration with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday announced the launch of a first of its kind Drone Disinfection Drive in Worli, Mumbai. The event was inaugurated by Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray and the Mayor Kishori Pednekar amongst other dignitaries.
This method known as Aerial Microbial Disinfection had been used earlier for the disinfection of mosquito breeding and other vector-borne diseases in areas that are usually inaccessible. These drones can fly over 500m high for a period of 12 hours while carrying over 15 litres of disinfectant; they can cover an area of over 50 acres in a single day. This innovation is a much-needed thorough solution for the post-pandemic world.
The chemicals used in the disinfection drone such as Virex II 256, Vecon (Sodium Hypochlorite) Viroff, Pursue and Lysol solution has proven highly effective against 65 strains of virus from over 19 viral families, 400 strains of bacteria, and over 100 strains of fungi.
“Using technology to elevate the world through integrated facility management has always been one of the key drivers of our organization’s success. We take pride in leading this initiative in collaboration with BMC and look forward to working on similar initiatives. Such solutions have multiple facets of use and this contributes to the array of efficient solutions needed for the post-pandemic world.”~ Pradeep Lala, MD and CEO, Embassy Services Private Limited.
