The plant will generate medical-grade oxygen and fill 450 big D type cylinders daily and 150 medium B size cylinders on demand supplied to all hospitals
Fertiliser cooperative IFFCO today said its second oxygen plant being set up in Uttar Pradesh, at Baraily, will commence operation from 30 May and will provide the supply for free to hospitals in the state and adjoining areas.
IFFCO is setting up total four oxygen plants in India at a cost of about ₹30 crore.
Two plants will be established in Uttar Pradesh -- one at Aonla in Bareilly and the other one at Phulphur in Prayagraj. One each plant is coming at Paradeep (Odisha) and Kalol (Gujarat).
IFFCO's Managing Director Dr U S Awasthi tweeted about the same and wrote, "To give free oxygen to hospitals in nation's service, IFFCO gave order for second Medical Oxygen plant with capacity of 130 cubic mtr per hour in its Aonla unit in Uttar Pradesh. Will commence by 30th May."
Awasthi said it is an automatic cylinder filling turnkey plant and transpiration requires time. A dedicated and separate team has been allocated for this matter, he added.
Awasthi said the proposed oxygen plant at Aonla will generate medical grade oxygen and fill 450 big D-type cylinders daily and 150 medium B-type cylinders on demand supplied to all hospitals free from May 30.
"IFFCO will fill up free of cost the #oxygen cylinders for hospitals in UP and adjoining areas," he said adding that they need to bring their own cylinders for refill.
According to the release by IFFCO, they will give out free oxygen to hospitals in the nation's service.
