Focus Area: Oxygen Supply
Solution: Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) oxygen generating plants
Geography: Pan India, with focus on Maharashtra and Telangana
Founded in 1992, Spantech Engineers Pvt Ltd (SEPL) is a Mumbai-based firm manufacturing and supplying Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) nitrogen plants, compressed air systems and oxygen and nitrogen generation systems. During the deadly second wave of COVID-19, the scarcity of liquid oxygen used in hospitals led to a sudden spike in the demand for PSA oxygen plants. SEPL responded to the demand by installing PSA oxygen plants at hospitals. The firm has the technical expertise to indigenously develop PSA oxygen plants. It has also developed a technology for conversion of existing PSA Nitrogen plants to oxygen ones to meet the additional need for oxygen supply. These plants are moveable and can be directly hooked on to the supply line for ventilators.
With support from SAMRIDH, SEPL will install 53 PSA oxygen plants in government hospitals and COVID-19 centers around India, specifically in Maharashtra. This will ensure sustainable and continuous access to oxygen supply in healthcare facilities in India and enhance pandemic preparedness.
