Ventilator production unit was launched on March 16 in Tashkent by the Slovakian Chirana and the Russian company Shimco Group.
The Uzbek-Russian-Slovak JV Chirana Asia can produce up to 500 ventilators per year. The total cost of the project is US$ 6 million.
As the president of Shimco Group Vasily Shimko noted, the ventilators manufactured in Tashkent will use a membrane compressor instead of a turbine, which significantly increases the service life and reduces the cost of ventilator maintenance.
At the first stage, the Russian company invested US$ 2 million; in the future, the joint venture plans to master the production of anesthetic, respiratory and dental equipment.
Up to 80% of products are planned to be marketed to the Central Asia countries and Afghanistan.
