The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH), Dr. Wilson K. Aruasa, has revived the Oxygen Plant.
The Plant roared back to life on 2nd January, 2018.
This development means that the oxygen plant will be able to supply oxygen, through the piping system-which is already in place, to all the wards in the Hospital. Theatre, New Born Unit (NBU) and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are served by liquid oxygen from the oxygen tank. This will significantly cut costs associated with purchasing liquid gases from suppliers.
Further, it will also improve on convenience and stability of the oxygen supply in the Hospital.
MTRH tendered for servicing of the plant last year (August 2017). Atlas Copco, an international firm dealing with innovative sustainable solutions that create value for customers in more than 180 countries, won the tender.
The company has expertise in compressors, vacuum solutions and air treatment systems, construction and mining equipment, power tools and assembly systems.
The plant was assembled by On-site Gas company from South Africa and was commissioned by the then Minister for Medical Services, Hon. Prof. Peter Anyang Nyong’o, on 30th April, 2008, now Governor, Kisumu County.
