Jindal Steel & Power Ltd (JSPL) claimed that it has successfully completed a 250 tonne Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF), marking the completion of its six million tonne per annum (mtpa) integrated steel project at Angul (Odisha).
Naveen Jindal, chairman of JSPL said, “with the successful completion of the BOF, the Angul steel complex will now achieve optimal efficiencies in terms of cost and operation. We congratulate JSPL’s Angul team for completing the BOF within the prescribed time frame.”
Thanks to the development, JSPL will utilise the full capacity of its four mtpa blast furnace, the largest in the country. Also, the BOF will enable the company to achieve significantly higher cost-effectiveness and efficiencies in steel making.
According to D K Saraogi, executive director, JSPL and head of the company’s Angul plant, “Adoption of Dry Gas Cleaning System reiterates JSPL’s commitment to green technology.” The 250-tonne BOF will produce three million tonnes of high-grade steel per annum.
