The FacilitiesNet.com “2021 Vision Awards” honor innovation and excellence in products contributing to the efficient, profitable operations and management of institutional and commercial buildings in the United States. The mUVe™ robot received the award in the building maintenance category, having been evaluated by independent judges for its technological advancements, efficiency, productivity, cost savings, and tenant satisfaction.
The mUVe™ robot incorporates patent-pending technology with an extremely powerful 475-watt UVC 254nm amalgam lamp. With 1-million-square-feet mapping capability, machine-vision-powered sensors, and voice warning systems, mUVe™ can be operated easily and safely by a trained operator. It is designed to deliver 99.9%+ disinfection effectiveness against common pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, and molds, within the range of 1 meter (or 3.3 feet). Moving at a speed of 18 inches per second, mUVe™ disinfects approximately 10,000 square feet of space within one hour without using noxious, time-consuming, and hit-or-miss chemicals.
“We are pleased and humbled to receive this timely technology award from a leading publication and voice for the facility management industry as we are planning to launch mUVe™ sales later this year,” said James Tu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Energy Focus. “The mUVe™ robot was born out of the COVID-19 pandemic as part of our overall UVC disinfection product portfolio strategy to provide effective, comprehensive, and chemical-free disinfection solutions for spaces of all kinds. Given the advanced capabilities of mUVe™, we expect it will help facilities with heavy traffic, such as universities, hospitals, factories, warehouses, and hubs plus other uses such as transportation vehicles, to disinfect public spaces in a precise, cost-effective, and energy-efficient manner. The mUVeTM robot provides a powerful, additional layer of safety measures to help prevent contagions in the post-pandemic world.”
