ArmInfo.Armenia is preparing for exporting the first batch of ozone generation devices developed by domestic manufacturers intended for purification of premises. The units are designed and manufactured at the production base of the ''Ozone Air'' enterprise.
As the head of the enterprise Ara Khachatryan said in an interview with ArmInfo correspondent, the competitive advantage of this device, designed for disinfection of 50 sq. m. area is that the air is disinfected not only with ozone, but also with ultraviolet rays and activated carbon. This "three in one" method, according to Khachatryan, was developed by Armenian engineers and significantly increased the efficiency of the installation. Local engineers have added an IT component with the ability to smartly control the disinfector's functions. The design of the device was also developed at the enterprise. Khachatryan said that while the majority of technological units, up to 70%, are acquired by the enterprise from abroad, however, it is possible that through internal cooperation the level of localization of production can be gradually increased. So far, the enterprise's capacities allow producing up to 10 thousand units of such compact devices per year, but the enterprise is already receiving proposals for the production of more powerful equipment designed for large premises up to 1000 sq. m. Investment interest from the UAE, Egypt, South Africa is outlined. It is possible that Ozone Air will start producing such large disinfectants under a foreign brand, but, nevertheless, the establishment of technologies will become a great advantage for industrial and innovative development within the country.
Speaking about the level of potential demand for products, Khacharyan is confident in an upward trend and an increasing demand of such production in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, which humanity will not be able to overcome soon.
The company is not going to limit its activity only to the production of ozone generators. There are already prototypes of charging stations for electric vehicles that work for both simple famous brands and Tesla vehicles. Armenia, according to the head of the company, can become one of the main suppliers of such equipment within the region and the EAEU market. In Armenia itself, about 400 electric vehicles of various brands have already been registered and their number will undoubtedly increase.
