Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has increased the production of medical oxygen to more than 1000 tonnes per day at its oil refinery in Jamnagar, Gujarat. It said in a statement issued by RIL.
Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has increased the production of medical oxygen to more than 1000 tonnes per day at its oil refinery in Jamnagar, Gujarat. A statement issued by RIL said that this oxygen is being given free of cost to the badly affected states of Kovid-19. The company has said that in today's time about 11 percent of medical oxygen is being produced by Reliance in India. The company has stated that one out of every 10 patients is being given oxygen produced by the company.
In a statement issued by RIL, it said that the company has airlifted 24 oxygen tanker airlifts from Saudi Arabia, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Thailand to further strengthen the supply of oxygen. This has increased the total transport capacity of liquid oxygen in the country by 500 tonnes. The company has said that the Indian Air Force has also been instrumental in airlifting the tankers.
The statement issued by the company said that Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, is self-monitoring the mission oxygen of the company. The company has said that Reliance is working on a dual strategy under the leadership of Ambani. Under this, the company's effort is to increase the production of oxygen as much as possible by increasing the loading and transport capacity by changing the various processes in the Jamnagar refinery.
It is noteworthy that products like diesel, petrol, and jet fuel are made from crude oil in Reliance's Jamnagar refinery. Medical oxygen was not produced in this facility, but Reliance Industries started production of medical-grade oxygen as the demand for oxygen increased rapidly after coronavirus infection.
Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries, said, "For India and all of us at Reliance, there is nothing more important than saving lives when India is competing against the second wave of Kovid-19. There is an urgent need to increase production and transportation capabilities of medical grade oxygen in India."
At the same time, Reliance Foundation chairperson Neeta Ambani has said, "We will try our best to help Reliance Foundation. "Every person's life is precious. Our refinery and plant in Jamnagar have been changed overnight to produce medical grade liquid oxygen in India."
