Abellio creates safer spaces with UV-C lighting

Abellio Bus London,

United Kingdom

Abellio Bus has chosen Powercor to install Philips UV-C disinfection active air devices, to ensure that staff at its bus depots are given the best protection from COVID-19.

Abellio Bus chose to install UV-C because we knew it was proven technology - it has been used in a number of different sectors, for decades - so it was the right choice for us.

Customer Challenge

Abellio wanted to ensure that staff at its bus depots are given the best protection from COVID-19 and other biological threats with particular reference to those areas in its buildings where natural or effective forced ventilation is either less than optimal or non-existent.

The UV-C Lighting Solution

Leading UK lighting and electrical contractor, Powercor, introduced Abellio to the Philips range of UV-C disinfection devices where they opted to add an extra layer of protection to key areas in the depots.
The Philips UV-C disinfection devices use ultraviolet light to inactivate microorganisms like viruses and bacteria, making them harmless to humans and animals. UV-C  technology has been used safely and effectively for more than 35 years.    At the control room in the Twickenham depot, Powercor installed Philips UV-C disinfection active air devices. At the training room in Battersea and in the reception area in Walworth, Abellio opted for Philips UV-C disinfection upper-air devices. A total of six depots have installed Philips UV-C disinfection devices to date.
