UV robots disinfect Super Bowl premises

by Marco van der Hoeven

Robots from Blue Ocean-daughter UVD Robots have helped disinfect One Buc Place, the facility of the Tampa Bay Bucccaneers, winners of the Super Bowl. The robots were deployed by Tampa-based company ip Program Infection Prevention in cooperation with Tampa General Hospital.

Yesterday the game was played to determine the champion of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2020 NFL season. The National Football Conference (NFC) champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Kansas City Chiefs, 31–9. It was the fifth Super Bowl hosted by the Tampa area and the third held at Raymond James Stadium.


The robots of UVD Robots are increasingly used in medical facilities. Recently the company won a EU contract to deploy 200 robots in hospitals across Europe. Unlike many stationary disinfection robots, the UVD Robot is a mobile, fully autonomous robot, that integrates UVC light to disinfect against viruses and bacteria not only on surfaces, but the air as well, providing a fully comprehensive infection control and prevention solution. UVD Robots enable hospitals to reduce disease transmission by killing 99.99 percent of bacteria and microorganisms within approximately 10 minutes in a patient room. The robots have been rolled out to more than 60 countries worldwide.
