Radico Khaitan installs O2 Generator Plants at govt hospitals in UP
With the increasing demand for medical oxygen due to the current health scenario, many home-grown companies have stepped up efforts to contribute to the cause in their capacity. In order to extend support, Radico Khaitan – one of the largest manufactures of Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) in India – has installed Oxygen Generator Plants at various locations in six districts of Uttar Pradesh.
The first oxygen generator plant was inaugurated by Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on 18th July, 2021 (Sunday) at the Community Health Centre, Bilaspur of Rampur district. The remaining oxygen plants will be installed in government hospital facilities at Prayagraj, Kaushambi, Kanpur, Mahoba and Chitrakoot in the coming days. The oxygen generators have capacity of 20 M3/Hr at o to 5.5 Bar Pressure (adjustable). The PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) Oxygen Generator Plants can continuously generate oxygen with the purity of 90 – 95%.
“Since lack of medical oxygen (which is crucial for effective treatment of Covid-19 patients) has been one of the major concerns, the company initiated the process for installation of 6 oxygen generator plants in UP in May this year,” said Amar Sinha, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Radico Khaitan.
