Sweden-based Elekta has received a contract valued more than $16m from Iraq for state-of-the-art radiation therapy equipment.
The contract includes ten 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 contract will be booked during Elekta’s third fiscal quarter and shipment is planned to commence in early 2014.
Elekta’s president and CEO Tomas Puusepp said: "It is with great pride that we announce this order. Elekta will give Iraqi doctors the possibility to offer their patients world class care."
