Generation Plants, termed ‘Oxygen on Wheels’ designed and developed by Naval Dockyard Visakhapatnam under the Eastern Naval Command (ENC) were inaugurated by Vice Adm AB Singh, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief ENC here on Thursday.
The Naval Dockyard Technical team conceived and developed two Oxygen Generation Plants each with 100 Litres per minute capacity, designed to provide a direct feed to any hospital’s pipeline system, ENC said in a release here.
The Oxygen Plants, mounted on trailers, can easily be transported to remote hospitals and connected to the hospital’s fixed Oxygen piping system – to serve as the main feed for up to 16 beds.
The Oxygen System can also serve as a backup to prevent incidents of low oxygen pressure in the hospitals.
Such a system has been conceived and implemented to support the State Government efforts during the on-going Oxygen crises, especially in smaller hospitals and rural areas that may not have the requisite infrastructure.
