Hyderabad-based renewable energy developer Greenko group said that it has received the first consignment of large medical grade oxygen concentrators as the first of the five dedicated cargo planes landed in Hyderabad with 200 large medical grade Oxygen concentrators.

KT Rama Rao, Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development, Industries and IT E&C of Telangana, along with Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar received the flight on behalf of the state government. Greenko Co-Founders, Anil Chalamalasetty, and Mahesh Kolliwere also present at the airport for this maiden arrival of the cargo flight.

“This is first of the five dedicated cargo planes we are bringing in through the strong global supply chains that we have set-up in the last two weeks. Within the next 5 days, four more dedicated aircrafts will land in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and New Delhi with 1,000 such large medical grade oxygen concentrators. This will aid our medical teams in tier 2 and tier 3 cities for pre-ICU support and post-ICU stabilization of patients and help combat the second wave of CoVID that has put severe strain on our healthcare infrastructure and support systems. We will continue our work to help the country and aid the efforts to fight the pandemic and have India again breathe freely,” said Anil Chalamalasetty, MD & CEO of Greenko Group.

Minister KT Rama Rao thanked Greenko founders for their effort, and said, “our first priority as government as business leaders and as responsible citizens is to provide relief to the patients and avert this oxygen crisis as prudently and judiciously as we can. We are indeed grateful to the Greenko group for helping us in these efforts.” 

In addition, 1000 large oxygen cylinders of 50 liters capacity each are in transit from Middle East to be delivered in the coming week to India. These systems will be deployed as stationary units in existing hospitals, healthcare units and mobile units to cater to the additional case load of oxygen deprived patients.

Greenko Group has been focusing on establishing reliable and medium-term supply chains quickly by navigating the diplomatic, geopolitical and logistical channels so as to ensure continuous supply of essentials including oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders to multiple states in India.

“As a country, we have been fortunate to receive critical monetary and non-monetary support as aid / donations, but we need to focus on establishing strong robust supply chains for mission critical equipment and supplies locally and globally. These supply chains that we at Greenko Group have established are capable of delivering 5,000 plus concentrators and cylinders continually which will hopefully help India in fighting the pandemic and breathe freely again,” added Anil Chalamalasetty.

The Group has an installed capacity base of 7.2 GW across solar, wind and hydro generation technologies spread over ~100+ projects across 15 states and delivering ~19 billion units of renewable energy annually across the country constituting ~1.5-2% of total India electricity needs.
