Third Oxygen Express dispatched with Five Empty Tankers To bring the LMO from Odisha

The third Oxygen Express started from the South Central Railway today i.e., 9th May, 2021 from Sanathnagar New Goods Complex. The Oxygen Express containing 5 tankers is proceeding to MBMB siding (M/s. Tata Steel BSL Ltd.,) Angul in Odisha, where the empty tankers will be filled with Liquid Medical Oxygen.

Indian Railways have started operating Oxygen Express trains o­n a mission mode to meet the Oxygen requirement in different parts of the country. Under this initiative, tankers filled with Liquid Oxygen are being transported by Railways through Ro-Ro (Roll o­n - Roll Off) service. In this way, the transportation of these tankers can be achieved with minimum enroute detention.

As part of this initiative, SCR has earlier moved two empty Oxygen Expresses to Angul and now the third o­ne has moved with the empty Oxygen Express at the request of the State Government of Telangana. The Zone had proactively identified the Station capable of handling the Oxygen Express in the twin cities area. Immediately, o­n receipt of the request from the State Government, the originating station as well the Green Corridor to move the Oxygen Express was mapped till the destination station.

The Green Corridor is mapped so as to ensure faster movement of these tankers. As height is o­ne of the important aspect of moving the tankers by trains, the green corridor is mapped taking into consideration various constraints like Curves, Road Over Bridges, Platform canopies, Over Head Equipment etc., along the route. Further, considering its importance, the movement of these trains is being monitored continuously at the apex level.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR advised the Officials to continue taking proactive steps in case of any request for further Oxygen Express movement over the Zone. He also instructed all the Divisions to give utmost priority to run these trains and continuously monitor the movement of Oxygen Express over the Zone.
