Lucknow, Oct 8 Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday inaugurated an Ultra-High Purity Cryogenic Oxygen Plant in Modinagar town in Ghaziabad district.
The plant has been commissioned by INOX Air Products (INOX AP), which is one of India's largest manufacturers of industrial and medical gas.
As the largest gas manufacturing unit in Uttar Pradesh, the Air Separation plant with a capacity of 200 Tonnes Per Day (TPD) will produce Liquid Oxygen, Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Argon.
The foundation stone for this project was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 29, 2018.
As a part of MoU signed between the Uttar Pradesh government and INOX AP during 'Investors Summit 2018', the plant has been commissioned, depicting INOX AP's strong intent to fulfil the need of medical oxygen as well as aid the state's industrial growth with a robust supply of industrial gases.
With a potential to produce 150 metric tonnes of liquid oxygen per day, the plant now takes state's current liquid oxygen manufacturing capacity from 115 metric tonnes to 265 metric tonnes per day.
It will fulfil the oxygen demand of more than 200 hospitals and medical colleges in the state as well as cater to the industrial gases needs of various industries.
