Ministry of Power: Uninterrupted power supply to oxygen plants
The Ministry of Power has taken a number of pro-active, preventive and remedial measures to ensure that there is uninterrupted power supply to Oxygen Plants by the State Utilities in view of the COVID pandemic.
The Ministry is monitoring the power supply to 73 major identified Oxygen Plants across the country. Out of these, 13 Oxygen Plants supply oxygen to the NCR region.
The proactive measures which have been put in place include daily review by Secretary, Power and Round the Clock operation of Control Room.
The position of power supplies to all such plants is reviewed every day at the level of Secretary, Power along with the concerned Energy Secretaries of the States on a case by case basis.
All issues related to 24×7 power supply to Oxygen Plants are discussed threadbare during the daily reviews and interventions are planned and executed in a time bound manner.
