The Essar Steel (EStIL) Hazira plant completed an order for specialized plates from the state-owned National Minerals Development Corporation (NMDC). The mining company placed the order for fabrication of a blast furnace for its new 3MTPA steel plant at Nagarnar in Chhattisgarh.

The order was for 1,851 MT of steel plates of Grade ASTM 516 and Grade 70, the thickness ranging from 12mm to 96mm. The blast furnace, with an inner volume of 4,506 cubic metres (cu.m.), is slated to be the largest unit built in the country.

A consortium of Danieli Corus and Tata Projects signed a contract with NMDC for turnkey supply of the blast furnace. The unit is designed to be equipped with a high-density, high-conductivity plate cooled lining system. In June last year, before finalizing the design of the BF, Danieli Corus approached EStIL for confirmation of its ability to produce plates conforming to these quality specifications. Once confident of Essar’s capabilities, the order quickly came through.

Production commenced immediately thereafter and plates were cleared for dispatch progressively, after inspection and testing by engineers from the client. The entire cargo was shipped by road — on 80 trucks — to the project site in Chhattisgarh; the last plate was dispatched on March 31, 2013.
