His Highness (H.H.) the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani visited today in the afternoon the Research and Development Centre at Barzan Holding Company affiliated to the Ministry of Defense at their headquarters in the Qatar Science and Technology Park to view the production lines for the manufacturing of the (Savr-Q) respirators.
During the visit, His Highness listened to an explanation about the production lines of the (Savr-Q) respirator. Barzan will produce the respirators through a strategic partnership with the American company, Wilcox, in order to cover the health sector's requirements in the country, and to export abroad in light of the increased global demand for respirators for the treatment of those affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19). The company is estimated to produce 2,000 devices per week.
His Highness 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 artificial respirators (Savr-Q) by Barzan Holding Company comes in response to His Highness's directives to the Ministry of Defense to contribute to the measures taken by the country in combating the novel coronavirus pandemic.
H.H. the Amir was accompanied by H.E. Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, and a number of their excellencies ministers and senior officials.
