Tata Steel at West Bokaro commissions the 3rd Primary Crushing Plant
West Bokaro Division of Tata Steel commissioned the Primary Crushing Plant 3 (PCP 3). PCP 3 was inaugurated today by Mr T V Narendran, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Tata Steel, in the presence of Mr Rajeev Singhal, Vice President (Raw Materials), Tata Steel, Mr Sanjay Singh, General Manager (Coal), Tata Steel and senior officials of Tata Steel.
PCP 3 has been set-up with an objective of augmenting coal beneficiation at the colliery. The project will result in significant savings on the net bottom line annually, which had been accruing out of coal transportation by road to PCP 2. Total investment in the project is to the tune of Rs 57 crore. PCP 3 will not only help in production ramp up but will also address road safety and environmental challenges.
Regular raw material supply is crucial to Company's steel production. Addition of new facilities in West Bokaro will help Tata Steel meet the requirement of coal for its steel works at Jamshedpur and Kalinganagar.
