COVID19 Tata group to airlift 60 cryogenic tankers from overseas, build 400 oxygen plants

New Delhi. The second wave of Kovidatra-19 is becoming deadly and in the fight against this epidemic, Indian industrial houses are trying to provide all possible help by spending money like water. The Tata group has announced to bring 60 cryogenic oxygen tankers from abroad via aircraft and to set up around 400 oxygen production units. At the same time, Bajaj Group has committed to support Rs 200 crore.

The Tata group said that this oxygen can be used in hospitals in small towns. A senior Tata Sons official also said that various companies of the group together have arranged about 5,000 beds for Kovid patients. The group is also training some employees, especially those associated with its Indian hotels, so that there is no shortage of staff to care for patients. The group has converted many of its hotels into Kovid Hospitals. Chairman of Tata Sons (Infrastructure, Defense & Aerospace and Global Company Affairs) Banmali Aggarwal said that we are providing around 900 tonnes of oxygen daily. Tata Steel itself is doing this. Our people at Tata Steel have identified its transportation as a problem. We need special cryogenic containers. In India it is not. Therefore, it has to be traced to other countries and brought to the country by plane.

He said that we have identified and are in the process of bringing about 60 such containers. About 14 of that have already been brought. Many more to come. In this case we are working with our partners like Linde, with whom we have a good relationship. Aggarwal lauded the government for providing the Air Force aircraft to bring the container. He said that the second wave of the Kovid-19 pandemic has come from very severe and sudden. In this case it is different.

Aggarwal said oxygen still remains a challenge. One is the transport problem and the other is the production of oxygen. When we go to medium and small cities (Tier 2 and Tier 3) and villages, we will need localized methods for producing oxygen for hospitals. He said that the group has partnered with DRDO for this. Under this partnership, we will adopt the design of DRDO for the oxygen making plant. Aggarwal said that the group companies have come together to overcome this challenge before the country. Indian Hotels converted many of its hotel rooms into Kovid Hospital. It has 1,500 beds available. In addition, the Tata Trust has arranged 1,500 more beds in association with hospitals that are working with them. In addition, Tata Projects has provided 400 beds. These beds are added by new construction or improvements to existing hospitals. Apart from this, TCS is in about 16 cities. The company has about 100-100 bed capacity centers. There is also a complete system of oxygen in them. Together, the group has arranged around 4,000 to 5,000 beds.
