Liquid medical oxygen (LMO) supply from Odisha to other states remained continuous despite cyclone Yaas. The oxygen production in steel plants in the State was not impacted, the Ministry of Steel (MoS) said in a press .
MoS held a meeting with all major steel producers on 23 May, with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, to determine the likely consequence of Cyclone Yaas on steel-making and oxygen production.
All measures were taken to ensure that power failures do not take place. It was planned that temporarily for 2-4 days, the states which were dependent on Kalinganagar and Angul plants of Odisha would draw from the TATA Jamshedpur plant for Oxygen supply.
MoS confirmed that no power disruption was experienced by any steel plant located in Angul, Kalinganagar and Rourkela in Odisha. TATA representatives, who have plants in Odisha, have confirmed that there has not been any impact of cyclone Yaas on the LMO production on the Tata Steel plants.
Dispatch of LMO from all the attached oxygen plants in Kalinganagar, Jamshedpur and Angul continued without interruption.
