Indian Air Force, IAF will airlift six of the 12 ready-to-use cryogenic tankers today, 26 April, from Dubai.
Adani group took to Twitter to thank the IAF for its assistance.
The Adani group has arranged the procurement of these tankers, which will be used to transport liquid medical oxygen, LMO.
The first shipment of four ISO cryogenic tanks filled with 80 metric tonnes of liquid medical oxygen has already arrived in Mundra in Gujarat from Dammam in Saudi Arabia. The group is also securing 5,000 medical-grade oxygen cylinders from Linde, Saudi Arabia.
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.
