Covid logistics: Inox Air Products joins Railways in oxygen Ro-Ro

Industrial and medical gas manufacturer Inox Air Products has joined the Indian Railways in its ‘Oxygen Express’ trials of roll-on-roll-off (Ro-Ro) service innovation for rapid transportation of liquid medical oxygen, as the oxygen demand in the country has skyrocketed due to the second wave of Covid-19.

A trial was organised at Boisar railway station of the Western Railway in Maharashtra, where tankers of Inox Air Products loaded with liquid medical oxygen were placed on a flat and low defence bogie military (DBKM) wagon, and all the required measurements were taken, the company told the media.

Indian Railways had recently formulated a policy to transport liquid medical oxygen in cryogenic tankers using Ro-Ro train services to various destinations across India. The transportation innovation would help the state governments avail oxygen in remote areas from surplus areas in less time.

Inox Air Products is the largest manufacturer of industrial and medical gases in India. The company offers a portfolio of gases, equipment and services through a massive manufacturing capacity of 3,300 TPD of liquid gases delivered from 44 operating locations. The company empowers more than 1,800 small, medium and large manufacturing organisations across dozens of sectors.
