Embassy Services Pvt. Ltd. (ESPL) in collaboration with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) launched the first of its kind Drone Disinfection Drive in Worli, Mumbai on the 22nd of June. The significant event was launched by Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray and the honourable Mayor Kishori Pednekar amongst other dignitaries. This method was used for the disinfection of mosquito breeding grounds and other vector-borne diseases in areas that are usually inaccessible. These drones can fly over 500m high for a period of 12 hours while carrying over 15 litres of disinfectant; they can cover an area of over 50 acres in a single day. This innovation is a much-needed thorough solution for the post-pandemic world.
ESPL through its operational arm, TCFM (Technique Control Facility Management) has yet again contributed to the world through the provision of innovative solutions that ensure us of a safe and healthy environment. With innovation as one of their core values, the team assembled the microbial disinfection kit to have an ability to be hoisted by an industrial drone. Aerial Microbial Disinfection is the terminology of the method used where chemical tanks are hoisted to spray from an aerial view thus covering more space and saving lots of time. The drone can carry antilarval chemicals to sites usually inaccessible. The tech can also be used to combat the COVID Virus in high-density areas with less accessibility. Over 50 acres can be covered in a day using a single drone. The chemicals used such as Virex II 256, Vecon (Sodium Hypochlorite) Viroff, Pursue, and Lysol solution has proven highly effective against 65 strains of virus from over 19 viral families, 400 strains of bacteria, and over 100 strains of fungi.
