Absstem Technologies completes 129 oxygen installations in four months with the government

New Delhi : In order to make medical oxygen readily available across India, Absstem Technologies, a leading medical technology provider and medical gas generator manufacturer, teamed up with the Indian government on the production and installation of oxygen generators across the country. This came on the heels of a biting wave of COVID-19 which exposed the gaps in medical oxygen availability and supply in the country.

The Indian government first tasked Absstem to manufacture, deliver, and install medical oxygen generators in 129 hospitals across 25 states and four Union territories. Through that collaboration, Absstem was instrumental in the nation's effort to ensure sufficient availability of medical oxygen whenever and wherever it was needed. This process also involved moving oxygen generators from the urban cities to remote regions and areas.

At least 29 oxygen generators were airlifted to several prominent hospitals including Kargil and Zanskar in Ladakh, Mockokchung and Kohima in Nagaland, Anjaw in Arunachal Pradesh, and Kavaratti and Agatti Island in Lakshadweep. With a production capacity of 20 lac litres of oxygen per hour, Absstem was able to cope with the rising demand by deploying its expertise on installations, regardless of topography or altitude.

"We're professionals, it's what we do and we've been able to demonstrate our expertise so far. Whether it's high altitudes or low lands, our team is always committed to delivering success. In the Zanskar region of Ladakh, for instance, we installed oxygen generators at an altitude of 5,500M above sea level. Remote regions like Kavaratti and Agatti, on the Lakshadweep Island were getting their only source of oxygen from us due to their isolated geography and the fact that they don't share a border with India," says Mohit Sharma, Co-founder of Absstem Technologies.

Other remote locations like Roing in Arunachal Pradesh in the east, Morbi in Gujrat in the west, Kupwara, J & K/Zanskar, and Leh in the North, as well as Karikalampakkam and Puducherry in the South also received substantial oxygen supplies from Absstem during the period. India's recorded death figures were one of the highest in the world during the COVID-19, but for the efforts of companies like Absstem, the situation would've been worse.

Absstem began the development of medical oxygen generators in 2017 using the PSA (pressure swing adsorption) technology. The company started out as an independent source of medical oxygen, harvesting atmospheric air and requiring only electricity to produce oxygen. This alternative method of oxygen production became widespread in India after Absstem successfully installed its first batch of oxygen machines in 2020 at several private hospitals in Northern India. 

Absstem Technologies has shown capacity and resilience in their handling of the COVID-19 situation, deploying their field marshals even in the face of danger. The company expanded its team from a meagre 40 people to 120 people within the six-month period of the second wave in a bid to rise to the occasion. With oxygen plants set up in Uttarakhand, Hamirpur, Jharkhand, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland, and several other parts of India, oxygen production capacity has been boosted significantly toward ensuring that the country never experiences a repeat of an oxygen crisis in the future.

With over 200 installations throughout 25 states and four union territories in India, it has been recognized by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Government of India, as part of the Startup India campaign. It has served over 180 hospitals and clinics in just five years. The business has received CE, FDA, MSME, DIPP, and CII recognition, as well as ISO 9001, 13485, 14001, and 45001 certifications.

The company has launched  its new division, Absstem Industrial Solutions Pvt. Limited, that is purely dedicated to the industrial application of oxygen and nitrogen, with plans to delve into other gases in the near future, and aimed at catering to the gas needs of industries

Absstem was founded with the noble goal of empowering India in the international arena, recognizing the products as world-class solutions rather than merely machines. With the idea of non-stop innovation, the company's mission is to continuously produce medical-grade oxygen and nitrogen of the highest purity and achieve technical excellence. When Covid 19 arrived in India in 2020, it worked non-stop to accommodate the growing demand for medicinal oxygen. During the initial and second waves of the coronavirus, the business provided medical oxygen generators to more than 130 locations across India, saving millions of lives. Absstem Technologies' PSA-based revolutionary solution, the Medical Oxygen Generator-MedO, assisted in meeting the country's rapid rise in oxygen demand. With the help of the progressive and high-tech characteristics of this onsite medical oxygen solution, 18 hospitals were able to save countless lives.
