Embraer approached to produce ventilators for Brazil

27th March 2020 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Embraer is working with other defence and aerospace companies to produce ventilators and medical equipment to support the Brazil’s efforts to tackle the coronavirus outbreak.

A factory has been set up with technical and production capacity analysis completed to enable production of ventilator parts to begin in April 2020.

Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo is also working with Embraer to develop biological air filter systems which can adapt ordinary hospital beds into ICU units.

In the UK, Babcock and Airbus have expressed their willingness to produce more medical ventilators for the NHS.
