Strengthening of LN2 Distribution Network in the State

Overview

To supply Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) in a vast area of the entire state is a challenge. Being a super cooled liquid at -196° temperature it poses a bigger challenge in the form of transportation and logistics arrangement to distribute it at village level. This was the main stumbling block in the way of AI coverage. GLDB has tried to meet this challenge by installing LN2 silos at various places in the state, viz: Patan, Mehsana, Himmatnagar, Haripura (Surat), Rajkot, Vadodara, Palanpur, Junagadh, Bhuj, Gandhinagar and Anand.

Benefits

The availability of LN2 will strengthen AI coverage to the remotest areas of the state.

Achievements

Until now a total of 27 LN2 silos have been established in the state of which 12 silos are directly under the control of GLDB whereas 15 LN2 silos have been installed at various District Co-operative Milk Producer Unions.
