Sweden’s Elekta has received an important order from Iraq for state-of-the-art radiation therapy equipment.
The deal includes 10 Elekta Synergy Platform linear accelerators (linacs) to be delivered to five Iraqi Ministry of Health sites (two linacs per site): Babil, Basrah, Karbala, Missan and Nasriah.
The deal for each site includes treatment planning software (TPS), MOSAIQ Oncology Information Systems, patient fixation solutions as well as services.
The total contract is valued at more than $16 million and will be booked during Elekta’s third fiscal quarter. Shipment is planned to commence in early 2014.
Elekta’s President and CEO, Tomas Puusepp (pictured), says:
“It is with great pride that we announce this order. Elekta will give Iraqi doctors the possibility to offer their patients world class care.”
