JSPL has successfully built and is operating India’s Most Modern 6 MTPA Integrated Steel Plant at Angul – Odisha, comprising of India’s largest 4.25 MTPA Blast Furnace. The Blast Furnace came up in a record time of 27 months, establishing new benchmarks in global steelmaking. The Integrated Steel Plant, initially envisaged as the country’s first steel plant to be based on purely swadeshi raw material, involved setting up world’s largest Coal Gasification Plant (CGP) for Steelmaking through the DRI route.
JSPL has a 6 mtpa integrated state of the art steel plant at Angul, Odisha. It has a 1.2 MTPA plate mill, 1.5 MTPA Bar Mill and 810 MW captive power plant at Angul. Its plate mill is capable of producing 5-meter-wide plates, which is the widest plate ever built in India. The facility develops special grade plates for various critical applications like boilers, petroleum pipes, shipbuilding, automotive, oil exploration, earthmovers, warships, bulletproof vehicles and nuclear application.
JSPL’s pellet plant at Barbil has a total installed capacity of 9 MTPA production for different pellet grades. The plant includes a dry grinding facility that harnesses recuperation type of straight grate technology.
Equipped with fully mechanised techniques, JSPL’s Tensa iron ore mill currently produces about 3.11 MTPA of iron ore. This partially fulfils the company’s requirement of iron ore for producing sponge iron. Today, JSPL is working towards its goal of becoming self-reliant in its production.
Kasia is a high Fe and low alumina mine, which is located only 17 km away from our Barbil pellet plant. The company has a current crude steel capacity of around ~9 MTPA and plans to expand the capacity to ~16 MTPA by FY25. Access to this large captive iron ore source, therefore, provides a massive strategic advantage to the company. The company already has plans to use a slurry pipeline from the Barbil region to Angul which will further reduce the logistics cost.
