Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, 21 February 2020  - IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A., EURONEXT), the world’s leading provider of proton therapy solutions for the treatment of cancer, today announces that it has signed a contract to install a Proteus®ONE* compact proton therapy solution at the RSPAD Gatot Soebroto Presidential Hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia. IBA’s proton therapy system will be part of the hospital’s new “Center for Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therapy”, which will mainly be equipped by Austrian VAMED Engineering GmbH, as the principle contractor. The contract includes a short-term maintenance contract and is fully financed. IBA has begun to recognize revenue on the contract in the 2019 financial year and, including this order, sold nine proton therapy rooms in 2019.

This will be IBA’s 24th Proteus®ONE contract, further reinforcing the Company’s position as the clear market leader in compact proton therapy systems, with more than 40% market share.

Olivier Legrain, Chief Executive Officer of IBA, commented: “We are delighted to install the first proton therapy center in Indonesia and to further increase the reach of proton therapy globally. With 24 compact systems sold to date, of which 11 are already in operation, IBA’s Proteus®ONE solution stands out as the most advanced technology available in the market. In addition, our current research projects aimed at delivering Spot Scanning Proton Arc therapy as well as FLASH irradiation will help to maintain this technological leadership. We look forward to working closely with the Center for Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therapy in Jakarta to provide greater access to proton therapy for cancer patients in Indonesia.”
