WEC Developer NEMOS Joins Fight Against COVID-19

German wave energy developer NEMOS has started a project in the field of respiratory ventilators to support Covid-19 treatments.

Within the non-profit initiative Breathing Aid, a design has been developed that can be realized at large quantities with available industrial components.

This initiative is funded by the “Chancengleichheit” foundation and coordinated by Duisburg-based NEMOS and Mülheim-based NUMRAX.

The ventilator was designed according to findings from Wuhan and Italy, using a constant pressure (CPAP) in combination with oxygenation. NEMOS is currently working on the build of a first demonstrator.

The construction manual and further documents will be published open source to allow worldwide contribution to manufacture large number of devices in parallel.
