by Dikhyaa Mohanty

Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan requested the Centre Government to allocate additional 19 pressure swing adsorption (PSA) medical oxygen plants for Odisha.

According to the report, in a letter, Dharmendra Pradhan requested to the Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan regarding the requirement of the PSA plants due to the widespread impact of the Coronavirus second wave in Odisha.

In the letter, Pradhan stated that – “I request your personal intervention in setting up of 19 PSA medical oxygen plants in 15 districts as proposed by the State government. The timely action will help save the precious lives of people living in different parts of Odisha. The setting up of these plants on a war footing will go a long way in supporting the Covid-19 treatment of patients across Odisha.”

He proposed two PSA plants each for Balasore, Balangir, Ganjam and Mayurbhanj and one each for Cuttack, Deogarh, Dhenkanal, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Khurda, Koraput, Mayurbhanj, Puri, Rayagada, Sambalpur and Sonepur.

In addition to the 21 plants which are being set up by the central agencies in Odisha, the new PSA plants are required immediately. They have decided to set up seven PSA plants each in different districts of the State by DRDO, Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas and the Centre.
