HYDERABAD: To meet the medical liquid oxygen demand in Telangana, three cryogenic tanks from Thailand’s Bangkok were imported on Saturday.
As part of the corporate social responsibility, Megha Engineering Infrastructure Company Ltd (MEIL) has assured the Telangana government to donate (11) cryogenic tankers to the state. Of them, three cryogenic tankers arrived at Begumpet Air force station on Saturday afternoon. Each cryogenic tanker has a capacity of 1.40 crore litres of liquid oxygen.
Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar flagged off the tankers, which will go by train to Odisha to fill with oxygen. He said the three tankers have arrived in Hyderabad as the first batch and the remaining (eight) were supposed to reach by Sunday. But due to cyclone and unfavourable weather conditions remaining tankers will be arriving in 3 to 4 days. Somesh Kumar informed that the arrangements were being made to ensure proper oxygen supply to the Covid 19 patients in the state without any shortage.
“All the officers worked relentlessly to contain the spread of Covid 19 and also initiated steps to construct Oxygen plants, storage units and procuring tankers to supply oxygen to the Covid 19 patients in the state,” he said.
“Chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao has sought our cooperation in augmenting oxygen supply. While three tankers arrived today, the remaining eight will reach Hyderabad within four days,” MEIL Director B Srinivasa Reddy said.
Special chief secretary Sunil Sharma, transport commissioner MR Rao, MEIL directors Srinivasa Reddy, Doraiah and vice president Rajesh Reddy and Air Force station commander Sunil Tomar were present.
