The plant can support 60+ patients at a time at Civil Hospital, Gharaunda, Karnal
Honeywell Hometown Solutions India Foundation (HHSIF) has set up an oxygen generation plant of 600 litres per minute (LPM) capacity at Civil Hospital, Gharaunda, Karnal. The plant, which can support 60+ patients at a time, was inaugurated in the presence of Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister, Haryana.
The plants are being set up under the supervision of Americares. Each plant can generate 600 LPM, enough to cater to the needs of a hospital with more than 150 intensive care units (ICU) beds. The oxygen generated onsite will be directly supplied to hospital beds, including those in ICUs. Honeywell is also funding the annual maintenance contracts of these plants for two years to ensure they function smoothly after the one-year warranty period has lapsed.
In Haryana, specifically, HHSIF set up a 20-bedded fully-equipped COVID care centre in Gurugram and donated oxygen concentrators, ventilators, N95 respirators, and PPE kits across government and private hospitals in the state.
