At JSPL, it is our constant endeavour to make a difference to the industry, the nation and each of its citizens. Our newly commissioned 6 MTPA integrated steel plant at Angul is a major step in this direction. Spread over 3500 acres, the plant can ultimately host a steelmaking infrastructure of 12.5 MTPA.
In the first phase, the company has set up India’s most modern 6 MTPA integrated steel plant at Angul that comprises India’s largest 4554 cubic meter Blast Furnace, 3 MTPA Basic oxygen Furnace (BOF), World’s first Coal Gasification Plant (CGP) for steelmaking and world’s largest syngas based 2 MTPA DRI Plant. The plant also comprises a 1.5 MTPA Bar Mill, a 1.2 MTPA Plate Mill and a 810MW Captive Power Plant. The plate mill is capable of producing 5-meter wide plates, making it the widest to be ever produced in the country. The complex also has India’s largest high speed 2.3 MTPA Billet Caster and a 1.7 MTPA Slab Caster.
In terms of the product portfolio, Angul has the capability to manufacture special grade plates for various critical applications like boilers, ship building, petroleum pipes, high strength grades for automotive and earth movers, structural steel for oil exploration platforms, grades for making warships, ballistic launch applications and bullet proof vehicles, stainless steel low thickness plates for nuclear application. Additionally, with its diverse product range, comprising billets, plates and a host of others, the steel plant will cater to the burgeoning demand matrix for these products.
Among the largest private sector investments in Odisha, the plant has been built at an investment of Rs. 33000 crore, with the potential to generate large-scale direct and indirect employment for the state. In its relentless endeavour of Building the Nation of Our Dreams, JSPL aspires to dream bigger and work harder to contribute towards achievement of National steel production capacity target of 300 MTPA by the year 2030.
The major facilities at the plant include :
Environment Protection Measures
The company is very much concerned about the impact on environment and has therefore taken adequate measures and adopted the best pollution control norms available in the world. One of the major steps taken towards protecting the environment and reducing soil degradation is the usage of fly ash bricks in place of conventionally used red bricks in all construction activities at the project sites.
