Visakhapatnam Steel Plant – Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd (RINL) – is planning to commission its forged wheel plant project at Rai Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh by September.
Speaking to the media, its Chairman and Managing Director, P K Rath, said the steel alloy plant would supply wheels to the Indian Railways and it would result in import substitution.
Rath added that the steel plant (RINL) would also shortly sign an MoU with KIOCL (Kudremukh Iron Ore Limited, Karnataka) to set up a pellet plant.
According to the CMD, RINL was supplying steel to the mega Polavaram project, being built on the Godavari at Polavaram in West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh and also to other projects in the country, including the Statue of Unity in Gujarat in memory of Sardar Patel, the Rohtang tunnel and metro rail projects in different parts of the country.
