The construction of oxygen generator plant was completed by 75 per cent in Mawlaik township, Sagaing region, said U Wunna Tun, chairman of Mawlaik Township Administration Body.
The project started the construction in Myoma ward-2, Mawlaik town in the last week of July, 2021 and has been completed by 75 per cent, so far.
“Currently, the oxygen plant construction has been completed by 75 per cent. The machines to produce the oxygen have already arrived and it will be operated very soon. The machinery are being installed. We expected to produce the oxygen in the last week of September,” said U Wunna Tun.
The total cost of the construction site is estimated to be about K150 million. The whole project is being carried out with contributions from the locals and departmental staff.
“In the third wave of COVID-19 period, Mawlaik township has reported over 400 confirmed COVID-19 cases. There are many requirements when the treatment department provided oxygen. We are building an oxygen factory in our town to reduce the need for oxygen in the future, not only for the COVID-19 outbreak,” he added.
The construction project is being carried out by the Mawlaik district committee on control and emergency response to COVID-19 in cooperation with residents and departmental staff.
“At the end of this month, we will start producing the oxygen. At this moment, the number of people infected with COVID-19 dropped dramatically, but it will take a time to ride the pandemic. There may also be more infection cases. In this situation, the factory could provide oxygen. If product is more than the town needs, we will be able to supply it to the surrounding towns and villages,” he added.
The oxygen plant can produce up to 40 40-litre cylinders per day (24 hours). It will supply the need for oxygen to the patients who are infected with the COVID-19 virus and those who are suffered from other diseases, according to the Mawlaik town oxygen plant implementation committee. — Lulay/GNLM
