Metinvest Group continues to support Ukrainian doctors and supply medical oxygen to hospitals. It is stated in the company’s message on the Facebook page.
Vital gas is produced at the Zaporizhstal steel plant. Since the beginning of 2023, the company has already shipped 280 tons of oxygen to medical institutions in Ukraine. Currently, the geography of aid covers Zaporizhzhia and Dnipropetrovsk regions.
“Each ton of oxygen gives a chance to save hundreds of people who have complications from the coronavirus. In addition, oxygen therapy is used for the treatment of seriously injured and patients with chronic diseases,” the message states.
In March 2023, Zaporizhstal shipped 84 tons of medical oxygen to hospitals in Ukraine.
As GMK Center reported earlier, Zaporizhstal in 2022 transferred to hospitals of Ukraine over 1.3 thousand tons of medical oxygen. During the year, the plant provided vital oxygen free of charge to 14 hospitals in the Zaporizhia, Dnipropetrovsk, and Donetsk regions.
Also, the Metinvest Group, with the support of Ingulets Mining, purchased and installed two Malcomson stationary generators with a capacity of 165 kW and 265 kW for UAH 3 million in Kryvyi Rih Hospital №17. As part of cooperation with the company, the hospital is carrying out capital repairs of wards and departments, purchasing modern medical equipment, and improving the material and technical base.
