124 tonnes of Oxygen reaches Telangana by First Oxygen Express

5 tankers loaded from Odisha with 124.26 tonnes reaches Sanath Nagar Goods Complex

The first loaded Oxygen Express to Telangana was received at the Sanath Nagar Goods Complex today. The train brought 124.26 tonnes of liquid Oxygen filled in 5 tankers. These tanks were earlier sent in empty condition from Secunderabad (Secunderabad Cantonment Military Siding) o­n 28th April, 2021.

The Oxygen Express was transported from Odisha for a distance of 1334 kms in a short period of around 32 hours, with the train travelling at an average speed of 42 kmph from its starting station. To ensure that the train reaches the destination at the fastest possible time, Railways have identified a green corridor for uninterrupted movement of these trains.

Further, as liquid Oxygen is a cryogenic cargo, transportation of the tankers by Railways was carried out taking into consideration like limitations with regard to maximum speed at which it can be carried, maximum acceleration & deceleration. In addition, route mapping was done so as to ensure that the movement of tankers by railways is smooth with regard to curves, adequate height clearance along the route of ROBs, RUBs, FOBs, etc.

Indian Railways have initiated operating Oxygen Express trains across the country, during these critical times, to provide safe, secure, hassle-free and fast transportation of Oxygen to the different parts of the country. These trains are operated at the request of the State Governments. Accordingly, the first Oxygen Express from Telangana was operated in both directions (empty & loaded condition) from Secunderabad area to Odisha. The second empty Oxygen Express from Telangana has also reached the loading station.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR appreciated the Secunderabad Division for prompt operation of the Oxygen Express trains and for operating these trains without any detention. He advised all the Divisions to be proactive to meet the needs of any State Governments for Oxygen Express Trains.
