Qingdao / Shanghai / Frankfurt, 24 March 2020 - Haier Smart Home Co., Ltd. (D-Share ISIN CNE1000031C1, A-Share ISIN CNE000000CG9, "Haier Smart Home" or the "Company"), provides a digital solution in the field of protective equipment and disinfection for the struggle against COVID-19 through the IoT (Internet of Things) platform COSMOPlat. Haier COSMOPlat creates a supply and demand platform to align production with the need for protective clothing in the containment of the corona pandemic. At the same time, Haier has developed a mobile gate based on COSMOPlat for fever measurement and disinfection, which is being made available not only to China but also to Heidelberg University Hospital in a pilot project.
On 30 January 2020, Haier Smart Home launched the COSMOPlat-based platform for processing information on the availability of medical materials. Within only 48 hours from idea to implementation, Haier Smart Home, together with many partners, succeeded in establishing an anti-coronavirus epidemic platform. In a first step, COSMOPlat networked production, supplier and logistics companies as well as hospitals. The aim of the platform is to record the supply and demand of necessary medical material promptly and accurately and to ensure efficient use and distribution of resources in the struggle against the coronavirus.
In a second step, a fully automated production line for medical protective masks was set up within just six days, with the support of the intelligent COSMOPlat manufacturing and supply chain system. Testing production started on 7 February 2020 in the Chinese factory halls of automobile manufacturer Nissan. Since the start of production, 100,000 disposable protective masks have been manufactured daily. With the help of COSMOPlat, textile companies have also been able to switch production to protective clothing, producing 20,000 protective suits and 20,000 face masks within a few days. Since the launch of the platform, more than 20.000 hospitals, municipalities and companies in China have been supplied with over 87 million protective articles.
As global leader in home appliances, Haier Smart Home has gone one step further from a digital solution for COVID-19 control. Thus, Haier Smart Home has developed a mobile gate with two rooms for infrared temperature measurement and disinfection based on COSMOPlat within a very short time. Food-grade disinfectants are used to ensure the health and safety of users. In crises situations of the health care system, the non-contact temperature measurement of individuals as well as the disinfection of, among others, persons, pets and goods is thus made possible. In a pilot project, Heidelberg University Hospital is being provided with the first mobile gate in the fight against COVID-19. The tailor-made products are expected to arrive in Germany in April.
