Steady progress

25th February 2022

There is steady progress towards installation of the oxygen plant and pipeline.

Firstly, Chitambo is completing building of the shelter and office, for monitoring of oxygen production and sales.

Please see photos,courtesy of Mr Sydney Elekani, Hospital Executive Officer.

Then the Zambian electricity company, ZESCO, has visited regarding embedding electrical cables.

Mr Changwa, Hospital Administrator reports that:

" The manager for ZESCO Chitambo came on the site...and gave technical guidance regarding 3 phase connection. We will tap the 3 phase power from the distribution box near the oxygen plant about 40 metres away.

He gave guidance on the power cables we need to purchase for us to connect to the 3 please power."

We wish the team well with completing these aspects before Mulilo Gases returns to instal the plant and pipeline.
