FRENCH TECHNOLOGIES TO SUPPORT AMBULANCE

In early 2019, Uzbekistan will launch the production of ambulance cars based on the technologies of the French Peugeot Citroen Automobiles.

According to Rustam Rajabov, Acting Director General of GM Uzbekistan, it is planned to launch the production of two types of modern ambulances at a new plant in the Jizzakh region.

The plant is built by the joint venture Uzbekistan Peugeot Citroen Automotive (UzPCA), established by the Uzbek Uzavtosanoat and the French Peugeot Citroen Automobiles S.A with an equal distribution of shares. Its authorized capital will be 29.3 million euros, and the total cost of the project makes up 133.3 million euros.

The new plant is called to address the long-overdue problem with the absence of normal ambulances in Uzbekistan. Small vans Damas are presently used throughout the republic, but they are not adapted for the appropriate emergency medical care.

“Damas cars have been used as an ambulance since 1996. Previously, their function was carried out by RAF cars, but the plant was closed. As a result, the country needed a large number of cars for the transportation of patients. The choice fell to Damas. They are certainly not reanimation cars, but capable to render simple first aid, nothing more. The main task was to take the patient to the medical facility as fast as possible," Rustam Rajabov noted.

He told that the new plant will produce two types of ambulances "A" and "B" class. Cars of "A" class will be designed presumably for not emergency patients, accompanied by medical personnel. Class "B" ambulances will allow conducting operations by a team of doctors, as well as transportation and monitoring a patient’s at the pre-hospital stage.
