Bhubaneswar/Angul: Union Steel Minister Ram Chandra Prasad Singh dedicated TMT Rebar Mill of Jindal Steel & Power Limited (JSPL) at its integrated steel complex in Angul to the nation on Thursday.

Speaking on the occasion, the minister said, “India has become the second-largest steel producer in the world, leaving behind major economies. The maximum amount of steel has been produced from Odisha. By 2030, about 10% of India’s steel will be produced from Angul, Odisha by JSPL.”

Appreciating the efforts of Naveen Jindal in building a mega steel plant in Odisha, Singh JSPL’s plan to expand its capacity to 25.2 MTPA would contribute to the national economy. He also praised JSPL’s efforts to supply liquid medical oxygen to the country during COVID pandemic as its CSR initiative.

The minister along with a team of senior officials of the Ministry of Steel also visited the Coal Gasification Plant (CGP), the country’s largest blast furnace and the plate mill producing the widest plates and various other units of the mega steel complex. JSPL chairman Naveen Jindal and managing director V R Sharma and CEO Steel D K Saraogi accompanied the minister during the visit.

“We are privileged that the Union Minister dedicated the 1.4 MTPA TMT rebar mill at our Angul steelmaking facility. It is one of the most modern and largest rebar mills in the world. In addition to producing high-quality TMT rebars of different specifications for infrastructure building, the rebar mill will generate lakhs of indirect employment,” said Jindal.

Sharma said, “JSPL is a futuristic company which has the vision of producing at least half of its capacity through coal gasification which is key to green steel making for a sustainable tomorrow.”
