Philips Medicinska System is a leading supplier of magnetic cameras in Sweden. Each delivery of the more than 5 ton cameras is prepared for months. We call this heavy handling. Peter Mylly, an experienced project manager at Philips, has an iron grip on all the thousands of details in the projects.
Installing MRI equipment is comparable with a medium-sized construction project involving coordination of a number of suppliers with different specialisations. – We prepare an installation very thoroughly, holding meetings with everyone involved at the hospital and other suppliers involved so as to run through the technical criteria.

At project meetings with hospital representatives, Philips and MTAB review the transport routes inside the hospital from the point where the equipment is moved onto the premises. Doorways often have to be widened, and sometimes walls even have to be taken out in order to put the camera in place.
– Everything has to run smoothly in terms of happening at the right time, in the right place and in the right way when an MR system is moved in. We enjoy a good cooperation with MTAB and their project managers who deal with the deliveries. They also maintain full control over insurance policies and take out additional policies for lifting work.
When the MR camera arrives at the hospital, Philips has one or two installation engineers on site, depending on the complexity of the task. The workforce from MTAB comprises three to five people.
Lifting and transporting an MR camera and putting it in place can take up to a day, explains Peter Mylly. Installation then takes place over a few weeks until the camera can be used by the hospital.
Ten to fifteen cameras a year
An MR camera is a major investment, costing up to SEK 20 million. To that, you have to add the cost of construction for the installation and preparation of the various rooms required in order to use the equipment. A complete system also includes a range of peripheral equipment. Among other things, the large electronics cabinets weigh over 800 kilos apiece.
For MTAB, installation of MR cameras is not an unusual task. It works with some ten to fifteen cameras a year all over Sweden and the Nordic region.
– MTAB has so much knowledge on the installation of our MR cameras that we use them for every project, no matter where it is happening in Sweden, explains Peter Mylly.

Intelligent Robotic Octopus
The Swedish art duo Robert Stasinski and Alessandra Di Pisa has designed a unique piece of art – a giant robotic octopus. Using artificial intelligence, the octopus can interact with viewers around complex philosophical questions. MTAB transported the artwork from The Royal School of Technology in Stockholm to IBM’s headquarters in Kista. Med artificiell intelligens kan robotbläckfisken filosofera kring livets frågor. MTAB ansvarade för transporten från KTH till IBM:s huvudkontor i Kista.
