MRPL joins hand with State to fight Covid: To set up 5 oxygen plants-1

Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL) will establish five oxygen generation plants in Dakshina Kannada and the rest of Karnataka to support the state Government’s fight against the second wave of the Covid pandemic.

As guided by State BJP President MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and the district administration, MRPL will be setting up a 930 litres per minute plant in Government Wenlock Hospital.

Speaking to News Karnataka MRPL Managing Director M. Venkatesh said that the Covid pandemic has hardly hit the entire society especially the construction, and manufacturing sector. In these tough times, MRPL instead of focusing on making profits pledged to serve mankind. Shell MRPL Aviation (SMA), a joint venture between MRPL and Shell, will be contributing Rs 75 Lakh for this initiative. We have planned to establish 4 oxygen generation plants within 6 weeks, he added.

MRPL has already placed an order for this unit to M/s Summits Hygronics Private Limited and the order value stands at Rs 1.12 crores. This plant will be a 56M3/Hr capacity (930 litres per minute). This system will have Compressors, PSA Tanks, Filters, Tanks, Dryers, etc, and will ensure Oxygen Pressure of 4 bars with a purity of 93 +- 3 which will be sufficient to meet the medical oxygen requirement.

In addition, MRPL will be setting up 4 more Oxygen generation plants in four different places in Karnataka, as guided by the Government of Karnataka. It can be recollected here that recently the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (functioning under the Government of India) had guided different Oil and Gas PSUs to set up 28 Oxygen plants in Karnataka. Apart from the 4 plants of MRPL, MRPL’s parent company ONGC will be setting up 2 more oxygen plants in needy locations of Karnataka.

“MRPL is committed to supporting the citizens of our district, state, and nation at large during this unprecedented crisis and we shall back wholeheartedly the endeavours of honourable MOPNG and honourable MP and the district administration,” informed MRPL MD M. Venkatesh.
