INTERNATIONAL OXYGEN EQUIPMENT SUPPORT FROM CANADA
India’s COVID-19 wave in Spring of 2021 was ferocious in its spread and left many hospitals, clinics, and health facilities without a stable oxygen supply. The international community stepped into help, including generous support from Canada. Our customer was asked by the government to procure & send oxygen supply equipment and concentrators to India.
Priority Worldwide has a long history of co-operating with the international NGO’s and governments on international missions and we were tasked to organize an urgent charter flight to fly the equipment directly from Vancouver, BC to India. The challenge in this mission was due to the oversized nature of the oxygen supply equipment and the fact that the equipment was engineered into 20foot shipping containers.
Priority’s Emergency Response team and offices in Canada and Dubai worked closely with the manufacturer of the systems and the customer to ensure that all the necessary parts for the oxygen system found their way to Canada in time to fit the containers. This involved helping the manufacturer to source and ship compressors from Europe to Vancouver in time for the final build out.
