Vedanta’s Sesa Goa iron ore business has started supply of 3 tonnes of liquid medical oxygen (LMO) on a daily basis to hospitals in Goa. The liquid medical oxygen is being generated at Vedanta value added business at Amona and will be delivered to Goa Medical College (GMC) oxygen storage reservoirs. Vedanta VAB oxygen plant was initially established to produce gases used in the blast furnace operation of pig iron making.

However, last year, when the first wave of COVID hit the state, Vedanta extended support to the State by loading the 'first liquid oxygen tanker' generated from VAB's oxygen plant.

Vedanta is a diversified natural resources company, whose business primarily involves producing oil and gas, zinc- lead-silver, copper, iron ore, aluminium and commercial power.
