In wake of acute shortage of oxygen in the state of Maharashtra due to rising COVID cases, the Mahindra group Chairman Anand Mahindra on Saturday rolled out the ‘Oxygen on Wheels’ project to ease the transportation of oxygen from producing plants to hospitals and homes. Anand Mahindra tweeted, Today, oxygen is the key to reducing mortality. The problem is not of oxygen production but its transportation from producing plants to hospitals and homes. We’re attempting to bridge this gap with “ Oxygen on Wheels” a project implemented via Mahindra Logistics”. He said that the “Oxygen on Wheels” uses trucks in local shuttle routes to connect oxygen producers with hospitals and homes.
An operation control center has been established and the storage location is replenished from the local refiling plant. A direct- to- consumer model is being conceived. He further said that 61 jumbo cylinders have already been delivered to 13 hospitals in urgent need. I am deeply grateful to the team. He further added, the rollout plan includes Mumbai, Thane, Nashik, Nagpur going live with another 50-70 Bolero pickups on the road in next 48 hours. He also said that they will expand this project throughout the country.
