The Apollo UV-C LED light from Lind Equipment, Buffalo, N.Y., has been awarded a Canadian government contract under the Innovative Solutions Canada program. The program was in search of ground-breaking Made-In-Canada solutions that provided urgently needed goods and services during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The product was chosen from 550 innovative proposals submitted from across the country. Lind has facilities in Markham, Ontario, Canada. The light will be tested within Global Affairs Canada HQ in Ottawa, Ontario for 12 weeks.
If it is a successful test period, the light will be used as a sanitizing solution to decontaminate work areas and also for the potential re-use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
“We are incredibly excited to be a part of this project”
said Brian Astl, president of Lind Equipment. “I’m also very proud of the entire Lind Equipment team coming together to quickly design and develop the Apollo Light to help fight this pandemic.”
