Executive Vice-President of the European Commission Valdis Dombrovskis visited the production facilities of the NVO Chervona Hvilya during his visiting Ukraine last week:
The company’s Director, Dmytro Kovalchuk, demonstrated their first industrial metal 3D printer, xBeamGrand-1, 3D printed samples and introduced the prospects of the company’s innovations for the Ukrainian and European industries.
EU grants became an essential contribution to the development of the xBeam 3D Metal Printing technology – they helped us to take the first steps. We highly appreciate that the EC leadership is willing to personally see the actual results of European innovation support programs. I am sure that what they saw was both important and exciting.
Our xBeam technology is currently at the stage of commercialization and scaling, which requires more financing. We believe such visits confirm the EU’s intentions to continue supporting innovative Ukrainian businesses.
It is all the more pleasant that such distinguished guests found time to pay attention to such subjects during the war, when the visit to Ukraine manifests a certain courage. Ukrainians highly value such courage, no less than the aid that such politicians bring.
