The Tata Steel Group has continually focussed on driving and maintaining excellence in operations through a relentless drive for improvement in processes, product and people, and a spirit of innovation.
Tata Steel’s Indian operations draw its greatest strength as one of the lowest cost producers of steel in the world. The capacity expansion at Jamshedpur has been an important growth project and will help strengthen the product portfolio in India while rebalancing steelmaking capacities across the Group. The Kalinganagar Project - Tata Steel’s second integrated steel plant in India - is also nearing completion, and scheduled to commission its first phase by March 2015.
Tata Steel Jamshedpur Works
Over the years, Tata Steel has placed a continuous emphasis on improving processes, with a view to consistently enhancing efficiencies to achieve better performance benchmarks in all areas of operations. The Financial Year 2012-13 marked a major milestone in operating history of Tata Steel as the ongoing capacity expansion at Jamshedpur was completed with most of the facilities of 2.9 mtpa brownfield expansion being commissioned for production. Full ramp up of the capacity was achieved in March 2013. The Jamshedpur Works currently comprises a 9.7 mtpa crude steel production facility and a variety of finishing mills.
Stabilisation of the new LD#3 & TSCR plant at Jamshedpur Works, with an installed capacity of 2.4 million tonnes per annum of HR coils, consolidated the Company’s position in the Flat Products market. With this new mill, the product mix has expanded to include HR coils up to 1680 mm in width and also higher strength materials. The shorter cycle times of this process has improved the capability of the Company to supply HR coils at shorter lead times.
