SAIL Chairperson reviews ISP Burnpur’s performance

SAIL Chairperson C.S. Verma made an extensive on-site review of the performance of the recently operationalised integrated stream of the Modernisation & Expansion facilities, in ISP Burnpur.

Verma visited the Bar Mill, Continuous Casting Shop, Universal Section Mill and the Blast Furnace ‘Kalyani’ (the largest operating blast furnace in the country). Noting the progress of work since his last visit in December 2014, he exhorted the senior officials to work on a war footing for ramping up production to derive maximum benefits of the new facilities. He also interacted with representatives of trade union as well as officers’ association.

At the Bar Mill, Verma witnessed the Hot Trial Run of the mill. This Mill has a capacity to produce 0.7Mt per annum of high quality bars including seismic grade TMT rebars of diameter 8mm to 40mm in straight lengths.

ISP has recently commenced integrated operations of the massive modernisation and expansion programme implemented at a cost of around EUR 2.4B by setting up a state of the art steel plant right from raw material handling to finished steel production within a compact area of 953 acres.
