Tata Steel embarks on the 2 MT expansion program at Jamshedpur
Tata Steel’s journey on its 2 MT expansion program has started on 1st July 2005. The first step has been taken by deciding the order on M/s Outokumpu and L&T, for setting up a 2 MT iron ore sinter plant. M/s Outokumpu is a technology leader in this field and has designed 300 such plants across the world including the existing three sinter plants at Jamshedpur Works. The sintering process makes iron ore fines suitable for use in iron making in blast furnace.
The one million tonne expansion program at Jamshedpur is near its completion. Tata Steel has now initiated a further two million tonne expansion program in line with its vision of becoming a 15 MT Steel Company by 2010.
