Total supports delivery of reusable PPE to NHS trusts

Putting its expertise and resources to good use, Total brought together a consortium of energy companies focused on helping the NHS to resolve PPE shortages due to COVID-19.

In June, Total, Shell, Baker Hughes and The Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) delivered the first batch of reusable visors to NHS Scotland: 16,000 for NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and 4,000 for NHS Grampian. Based on tests, these visors can be sterilised and reused daily for over a month. This reduces waste and helps the NHS to have a consistent supply of this essential piece of PPE.
Edwige Ravry, Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) lead at TEPUK played a crucial role in the consortium’s creation.

“Initially, Baker Hughes began 3D printing visors fitted with laminated transparent sheets, donating them to several NHS trusts. We then came together to find a way to injection mould these visors which would simplify production.” explained Edwige.

 “We came together because we knew our combined experience, expertise and resources were a valuable asset, allowing us to quickly develop and deploy a reusable face shield to protect front-line NHS personnel,” concluded Edwige.
