Vizag Steel Plant to supply 150 tonnes of medical oxygen to Maharashtra today
Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) has become a lifesaver for patients undergoing treatment for the deadly coronavirus at various hospitals across the country. It has been producing 60 to 80 tonnes of liquid oxygen on an average every day to meet the oxygen demand. With the rise in Covid-19 cases, several states are facing shortage of medical oxygen.
A train with empty gas tankers is expected to reach Visakhapatnam from Mumbai on Wednesday. The VSP will be supplying 150 tonnes of medical oxygen to Maharashtra as the state has been registering highest number of positive cases in the country.
