Jharkhand: CCL to set up O2 plants at 2 hosps

The Central Coalfields Limited (CCL) will set up oxygen plants at its hospitals in Ranchi and Ramgarh to ensure seamless supply of oxygen to the Covid-19 patients admitted there.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the PSU said one oxygen plant will be established at its Central Hospital in Ranchi’s Kanke while another will be commissioned in its hospital in Nayasarai in Ramgarh. The two plants will draw a total investment of Rs 1.57 crore.

“The plant in Ranchi will have a production capacity of 700 litres per minute and will support 70 oxygen-equipped beds. Likewise, the oxygen plant in Ramgarh will support 50 beds at a production capacity of 500 litres per minute,” the statement read. Currently, the CCL Hospital in Ranchi has 110 Covid-19 beds.

The two plants are a part of Coal India Limited’s announcement to set up 25 oxygen plants across its 22 hospitals at a net cost of Rs 35 crore. The CIL has also pledged to set up oxygen banks in 10 districts of Jharkhand and Bihar and provide 20 ventilators to the two states.

However, sources in the CIL said there are plans to set up two other oxygen plants at its Dhanbad-based subsidiary Bharat Coking Coal Limited’s hospitals in Dhanbad and Bhuli in the coming months.
