As part of the agreement, COL will be installing a 20,000 litre liquid medical oxygen storage tank at The Lanka Hospitals, the largest such tank to be used in a private hospital in the country, according to a company press release.

COL Chief Executive Niran Pieris said, “We are delighted that The Lanka Hospitals has chosen COL as its preferred medical oxygen supplier and its partner to provide a liquid tank solution. In larger hospitals, conversion to a liquid tank solution offers many benefits compared to using a large number of small cylinders.”

Mr Pieris added, “We look forward to the continuation of a very successful long term partnership with The Lanka Hospitals as it moves forward in its expansion plans and serves the medical needs of its growing number of patients.”

COL, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, says it is the market leader and sole supplier of liquid oxygen and nitrogen in Sri Lanka and is the only gas company to have its own nitrous oxide plant and international standard laboratory. The company has invested Rs 1.3 billion on a new 65 tpd plant in Sapugaskanda, scheduled to come on stream in September 2012
