Dharwad MP Pralhad Joshi and District in-charge minister Jagadish Shettar performed Bhoomi Pooja for L&T Oxygen Plant to be installed at KIMS, Hubballi, and District Hospital premises, Dharwad.
L&T is constructing the oxygen plants as part of its CSR initiative. The constructed oxygen plants will have a capacity of generating Medical Oxygen at a rate of 1000 Litres/Minute. The plants will work on the principle of Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA).
The equipment has been imported from Turkey, capable of producing Medical Oxygen on spot using natural air. The generated Medical oxygen can be directly supplied to ICU wards and other wards through pipelines.
At present, Bellary district is supplying the required oxygen for the hospitals. The construction of the new plant will reduce the dependency on other districts reducing transportation costs and time. Officials from L&T were present during the event.
