INOX Air Products (INOXAP) will supply liquid medical oxygen to three major Covid-19 hospitals in India amid the ongoing crisis.

Under a new contract with the West Bengal government, the company will supply M R Bangur Super Speciality Hospital, M R Bangur District Hospital and ID&BG Hospital Beliaghata.

INOXAP said it has been supplying medical oxygen through its channel partners to more than 100 hospitals in West Bengal throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

With the largest storage capacity of 1,000 tonnes and the widest distribution infrastructure in the State, INOXAP said it has been performing this critical task with its fleet of 54 specialised cryogenic tankers, which have a total trunking capacity of 380,000 litres of oxygen, and through its network of authorised re-fillers.

“Oxygen has been an extremely critical element in the treatment and recovery processes for patients infected with Covid-19,” said Siddharth Jain, Director of INOX Group

“With our relentless efforts to ensure the supply of medical oxygen across the hospitals in the state, we take pride in supporting the government in this battle.”

Bengal today reported 3,189 new cases of Covid-19.
