Atlas Copco, recently inaugurated an onsite oxygen plant at Ramakrishna Mission Hospital, Vrindavan. This is a CSR initiative from Atlas Copco, and is a part of their community engagement and social outreach projects. The project has been undertaken through Beacon Medæs, a leader in medical gas and laboratory gas systems. The oxygen plant launch was part of the Sarada Block inauguration at the hopsital. The occasion was graced by the honorable President of India Ram Nath Kovind.
The onsite oxygen generation plant would lead to a more reliable source of oxygen supply, lowering the risk of interruption of supply amongst patients, which is a huge challenge in remote locations. The project includes medical gas pipeline system, including pipes, zone valve boxes, area alarms, master alarms, outlets and bed heads as per international standards; medical air system and medical vacuum system. The system has a manifold back-up of 60 oxygen cylinders in case of a major maintenance
activity taking place for the oxygen generation plant.
Atlas Copco, as part of its CSR program, also plans to provide on-site oxygen plants to more hospitals across Maharashtra in locations like Sangli, Nagpur and Mumbai.
