Navi Mumbai: As part of its preparedness for the possible third wave, the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) is planning to install five pressure swing absorption (PSA) plants to generate around 10 metric tonnes of oxygen.
Each plant will have the capacity to generate around two metric tonnes of oxygen daily. The cost of each is pegged at Rs 1.75 crore.
Meanwhile, the first plant of this kind was commissioned at the Vashi civic hospital on Thursday, which is set to generate over 1.86 metric tonnes of oxygen per day. NMMC has completed the tendering process for two more plants.
“Work orders will soon be issued to install plants at the Cidco Exhibition Centre and Airoli civic hospital. They will be ready by mid-July. We have identified two more locations at Belapur and Nerul civic hospitals,” said Dr Babasaheb Rajale, deputy municipal commissioner of NMMC.
This is self-sustained concept of having its own oxygen generation capability to meet medical emergencies. — B B Nayak
