Diversified business conglomerate Adani Group has joined India Inc’s efforts to secure and augment medical oxygen supplies amid a growing shortage of the life-saving gas in the wake of spiralling Covid cases in the country.
The Gautam Adani-led group has arranged four ISO cryogenic tanks with 80 tonnes of liquid oxygen from Saudi Arabia; and the first shipment is now on its way from Dammam to Mundra Port, the Company said in a statement on Monday.
It is also procuring 5,000 medical-grade oxygen cylinders from Linde Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, the Government of Dubai and the Indian Air Force partnered with the group in securing another 12 ready-to-use cryogenic tanks to transport liquid oxygen from Dubai. The Indian Air Force is airlifting six of these tanks to India.
The group is also arranging additional oxygen supplies for speedy distribution in Gujarat. Every day, its workforce is filling 1,500 cylinders with medical oxygen and transporting them to wherever those are required in the Kutch district.
