Industry Ministry tests home-grown affordable ambulances

The Ministry of Industry is testing whether affordable ambulances it is building meet the requirements of a tender put out by hospitals.

“We have manufactured two ambulance designs,” said Dr Toe Naing. “One is being tested. We expect that one will go into production in about two months’ time. We aim to produce affordable ambulances.

“We showed our test-ambulance to medical authorities and listened to their requirements. We tested old cars set to be scrapped to find which could be renovated as useful vehicles.”

Doctors at the 1,000-bed main hospital in Nay Pyi Taw are being surveyed for their suggestions on the affordable ambulance.

“The motor will be assembled at the Household Consumer Department (Myinsu). Supply of the ambulances will depend on the tender being put out by the hospitals this year. We are going to manufacture an ambulance within three or four months.

The Industry Ministry will join private bids in competing for the tender. We can’t manufacture medical equipment such as oxygen machines, but we will install branded medical equipment in our ambulances. We have to change the interior design. Our main aim is to manufacture useful and affordable ambulances,” said Dr Toe Aung.
