Gautam Adani-led diversified conglomerate Adani group has joined corporate India's efforts to bolster the national effort and capacity against the surging spread of COVID-19 by importing cryogenic tanks and medical-grade oxygen cylinders from Saudi Arabia.
The first shipment of four ISO cryogenic tanks filled with 80 metric tonnes of liquid medical oxygen are already on their way from Dammam in Saudi Arabia to Mundra in Gujarat. The group is also securing 5,000 medical-grade oxygen cylinders from Linde Saudi Arabia.
For the assistance provided, Gautam Adani thanked the Indian Ambassador of India to Saudi Arabia, Dr Ausaf Sayeed.
Meanwhile, it should also be noted that in addition to these efforts, the conglomerate is also arranging additional oxygen supplies for rapid distribution in Gujarat. In a Twitter post, Adani shared that each day his group is supplying 1,500 cylinders with medical oxygen to wherever they are needed in Kutch of Gujarat.
Adani Group's efforts add to the contributions being made by the private sector majors like Tata Group, JSW Group, Reliance Industries Limited, ITC Limited, and many more towards helping the nation cope with the surging COVID-19 cases in the country.
