Bhubaneswar: The Railways will be running Oxygen Express to supply oxygen from steel plants to different parts of the country.
First Roll On-Roll Off (Ro-Ro) Oxygen Express is now in ECoR with seven empty tankers from Kalamboli Goods Shed in Maharashtra. It reached Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited, Visakhapatnam, early on Thursday. Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) will now be filled in the tankers before the train leaves for Maharashtra.
This initiative will help patients and different hospitals grappling with oxygen cylinders shortage.
Railways transported essential commodities and kept the supply chain intact even during the lockdown last year.
