New Delhi. The Supreme Court has also taken cognizance of the way in which there is lack of oxygen in hospitals due to Kovid in the country. Tata, Reliance and the country’s major private companies have also come forward. On the other hand, the Steel Authority of India Limited, the largest steel company of the country, has also taken the responsibility of oxygen production. However, SAIL has been supplying oxygen to hospitals continuously since last 9 months. Let us also tell you what kind of data has come out from the cell and what is the plan for Oxygen in the coming days.
Has been supplying continuously since 9 months
According to the information, SAIL has already supplied 36,747 metric tonnes of liquid medical oxygen since August 2020 as per the requirement. With the increase in demand for liquid medical oxygen in the country, SAIL started insisting on increasing production from the beginning of this month. Talking about the last 6 days, the company has supplied an average of 660 metric tonnes of liquid medical oxygen from its plants per day. On April 21 alone, the company supplied 891 metric tonnes of liquid medical oxygen.
Decreased production of nitrogen and argon
SAIL has reduced the production of gaseous oxygen, nitrogen and argon in addition to optimizing process parameters in its plants to promote the production of liquid medical oxygen. Liquid medical from cell plants is ready in every way to increase the production of oxygen. Plants are insisting on maximizing the production of LMOs and reducing the turnaround time of oxygen tankers. With the help of Indian Railways and Ministry of Steel, SAIL plans to load a rack from its Bokaro Steel Plant. This will greatly help in the extraction of large amounts of liquid medical oxygen and to reach a fixed location faster.
