SOUTH CENTRAL RAILWAY
PRESS RELEASE
PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICE, SECUNDERABAD - 500 071
No.73/2020-2110-05-2021
Secunderabad
First Oxygen Express to Secunderabad with loaded Tankers Starts from Angul



5 tankers with 63.6 tonnes of Oxygen is being transported back to Secunderabad

The Oxygen Express loaded with 5 tankers has commenced its journey from Angul in Odisha to Secunderabad. The five empty tankers were sent from Secunderabad (Secunderabad Cantonment Military Siding) o­n 28th April, 2021. These tankers after getting filled with Liquid Oxygen have commenced their journey back to Secunderabad along the Oxygen Express. The five tankers are together carrying 63.6 tonnes of oxygen.

The Liquid Oxygen being transported in these tanks is a cryogenic cargo which has many limitations like maximum speed at which it can be carried, maximum acceleration & deceleration and loading restrictions (like availability of liquid oxygen tankers, loading ramps etc). The Route Mapping of the train along with green corridor is done taking in to consideration of all these factors (including ensuring adequate clearance along the route in terms of curves, RUBs and FOBs, etc).

The Oxygen Express trains have been started by the Indian Railways to provide safe, secure, hassle-free and fast transportation of Oxygen to the different parts of the country during these critical times. Under this initiative, the road tankers (both empty as well as loaded) are transported by the railways through Ro-Ro (Roll o­n - Roll Off) service. The Oxygen Express trains are operated at the request of the State Governments. While the States provide the tankers, the Railways undertake to bring the Oxygen supplies to the requisitioning State in fastest feasible mode.

Accordingly, SCR has been operating these trains to meet the needs of the States. The Zone has operated two empty Oxygen Express trains from Secunderabad, while the first train had 05 empty tankers, the second train was sent with 04 empty tankers (on 30/04/21). Now, the first train has commenced its journey back from Angul with Liquid Oxygen filled tankers.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR has assured that the Railways will continue to provide utmost priority to the running of the Oxygen Express trains. Any request received o­n this front will be immediately processed so as to operate the trains at the earliest. He advised all Officers and Staff to maintain continuous monitoring of the movement of this train along the green corridor.
