DRDO’s tech to help set up 500 O2 plants

DRDO will set up 500 medical oxygen plants within the next three months from the allocations made by the PM Cares Fund, defence minister Rajnath Singh said on Wednesday.

"The medical oxygen plant technology developed by DRDO for on-board oxygen generation for light combat aircraft Tejas will now help in fighting the current crisis of oxygen for Covid-19 patients," said Singh. The DRDO said the transfer of MOP technology has been undertaken to Bengaluru-based Tata Advanced Systems Limited and Coimbatore-based Trident Pneumatics. These two companies will set up 380 plants for installation across various hospitals in the country, with at least five such plants coming up in the Delhi-NCR region next month.
