Jindal Stainless supplies SS 301LN for Kolkata Metro

Jindal Stainless has played a pivotal role in furnishing stainless steel for the recent inauguration of India’s inaugural underwater metro line in Kolkata. This significant project, valued at INR ₹4,965 crore, marks a remarkable achievement in the nation’s transportation infrastructure. The underwater section of the metro, spanning from Esplanade to Howrah Maidan on the Green Line, traverses a distance of 4.8 kilometers beneath the river Hooghly, offering commuters a swift journey of 45 seconds. This route is an integral part of the expansive East-West Metro corridor, connecting Howrah Maiden to Salt Lake Sector V, a prominent IT hub in West Bengal.

Utilizing SS 301LN, a premium austenitic grade of stainless steel, in various tempers for the fabrication of Kolkata Metro components, underscores its sustainable versatility and adaptability for diverse applications. With its corrosion-resistant properties, SS 301LN eliminates the need for frequent repairs and maintenance, emerging as the most economically viable solution based on life cycle costing.
