Linde India have joined hands with Tata group and Government of India (GoI) to undertake measures to augment the availability of liquid medical oxygen (LMO) across the country.
In one such measure to bolster the delivery infrastructure for medical oxygen, Linde India in partnership with Tata group have secured 24 cryogenic containers for carriage of medical oxygen from international sources.
These containers have arrived by airways to Eastern part of India, from where Linde would be transporting them to their Liquid Oxygen manufacturing facility. At the Linde facility, these cryogenic ISO containers, would be conditioned and certified for liquid medical oxygen usage.
Each of these containers, which can carry up to 20 tons of Liquid O2 – will be used by Linde to pick-up oxygen from various manufacturing facilities and deliver it to hospitals where required.
These ISO containers can also act as interim oxygen storages in remote areas which are facing oxygen scarcity.
