Reliance oxygen supply: Mukesh Ambani himself is monitoring this mission. Oxygen tankers have been airlifted from Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Saudi Arabia and Thailand for oxygen supply.
Reliance is producing about 11 percent of India’s medical grade oxygen.
Reliance Industries Limited is producing more than 1000 tonnes of medical-grade oxygen per day in its Jamnagar oil refinery. This oxygen is being given free of cost to the badly affected states of COVID-19. Reliance is producing about 11 per cent of medical grade oxygen in India today and about 1 out of every ten patients is being given oxygen.
Mukesh Ambani is monitoring Reliance’s mission oxygen. Under his leadership, Reliance is working on a dual strategy. The first is to change the process of many of Reliance’s refineries in Jamnagar to produce more and more life-sustaining oxygen and secondly to increase the loading and transportation capabilities so that it can be safely transported to the needy states. In Reliance’s Jamnagar refinery, crude oil is made from diesel, petrol, and jet fuel, where medical-grade oxygen was not produced. But in view of the rapid increase in the cases of coron virus and the demand for oxygen, Reliance has installed such machinery which has made it possible to produce medical-grade oxygen.
Total production of 15000 MT Oxygen in April
In a very short time, Reliance has increased the production of medical grade oxygen from zero to 1000 MT. With this much oxygen, an average of 1 lakh patients will be able to breathe every day. Reliance has supplied 15,000 MT in the month of April and 55,000 MT of medical grade oxygen free since the onset of the epidemic.
24 oxygen tankers have been airlifted from abroad
The loading and supply of oxygen has emerged as a major obstacle in the country. Engineers of Reliance found the solution by converting nitrogen tankers into oxygen tankers. In addition, Reliance airlifted 24 oxygen tankers from Saudi Arabia, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Thailand to strengthen the oxygen supply chain. This has increased the total transport capacity of liquid oxygen in the country by 500 MT. The Indian Air Force also had a lot of support in airlifting tankers. At the same time, Reliance Partners Saudi Aramco and BP helped in the purchase of oxygen tankers. Reliance has thanked the Indian Air Force and its subsidiaries.
Need to expand oxygen production and transportation capabilities
Expressing satisfaction over the initiative of Reliance, Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani said, “When India is fighting against the second wave of COVID-19, for me and for all of us at Reliance, nothing is more important than saving lives.” There is an urgent need to increase production and transportation capabilities of medical grade oxygen in India. I am proud of my engineers from Jamnagar who have worked tirelessly to meet this new challenge, with a sense of patriotism. I am really convinced of the determination shown by the youth of the Reliance family, they stood firmly at a time when India needed it most. “
Technical changes made in Jamnagar Refinery
In a statement, Reliance Foundation chairperson Nita Ambani said that “our country is going through an unprecedented crisis. We will try our best to help at Reliance Foundation. Every life is precious Our Jamnagar refinery and plants have been converted overnight to produce medical grade liquid oxygen in India. Our prayers are with the countrymen and women. Together, we will overcome these difficult times. “
