Oxygen Express Operations Expands to Telangana and Haryana


-Cumulative liquid medical oxygen (LMO) carried by Indian railways to reach almost 640 MT in next 24 hrs

-Oxygen Express Operations of Indian Railways continue to bring relief to the States

Oxygen Express Operations of Indian Railways continued to bring relief to the States as its operations expanded to the States of Telangana & Haryana after Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi.

Telangana Govt. has also requested Indian Railways for Oxygen express. An empty rake is o­n its way from Secunderabad to Angul with 5 empty tankers and is expected to reach from Angul to Secunderabad at the earliest.

Continuing the momentum, there are three more trains o­n the run either carrying Liquid Oxygen or o­n the way to the loading plants. It is expected that cumulative liquid medical oxygen (LMO) carried by Indian railways will reach almost 640 MT in next 24 hrs. Uttar Pradesh received its Oxygen express no. 5 carrying 76.29 MT of liquid medical oxygen (LMO) today in 5 tankers. 1 Tanker was offloaded in Varanasi while remaining 4 tankers are offloaded in Lucknow. Train no. 6 is already o­n its way to Lucknow and is expected to arrive tomorrow i.e. 30 Apr 2021 carrying 33.18 MT LMO in 4 tankers.

Railways are in full preparedness for providing oxygen transportation services to all the states in need. In the o­n-going operation, States provide tankers to the Railways. Railways then proceeds in fastest feasible mode to bring the Oxygen supplies from the locations and delivers it the requisitioning State. The deployment and use of this Oxygen is done by the State Government.

Liquid Oxygen being a cryogenic cargo has many limitations like maximum speed at which it can be carried, maximum acceleration & deceleration and loading restrictions like availability of liquid oxygen tankers and loading ramps etc. Route mapping also takes care of the maximum clearances available along the route (because of various RUBs and FOBs).
