Godrej eyes Rs 200 crore revenue from medical refrigerator
Lucknow: With an aim to facilitate the government in its efforts towards 90% immunisation coverage - the mission adopted by Government for its Indradhanush program, the Godrej Appliances has developed an innovative standalone vaccine storage device in the form of a combined fridge freezer for remote health centres.
Godrej Appliances are planning to build manufacturing capacity for 30,000 units from the current capacity of 10,000 units over the next 2 years and hope to generate Rs 200 crore revenue from medical refrigerator portfolio by 2020
Godrej's combo fridge freezer solution can also run on solar power - completely independently, and one such equipment can cater to 6 outreach programs in a week. This will give the government immense flexibility to set up more remote health facilities and boost actual immunisation coverage while its precision temperature control between 2-8°C will ensure maximum utilisation of vaccines.
Godrej Appliances has also identified blood storage as a space that needs technological innovation, as blood storage also requires maintenance of optimum temperature range of 2-6°C. Below 2°C, the blood haemolyses and transfusing heamolysed blood can cause renal failure and fatal bleeding problems and above 6°C blood is at the risk of bacterial contamination.
