ROURKELA, FEB 11, 2021
Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has clocked the best ever monthly specific energy consumption of 5.94 Giga calories per tonne of crude steel (Gcal/TCS) in January, 2021. The remarkable achievement in the key techno-economic front compliments the record production performances by major units of the Steel Plant. Notably, the previous best monthly specific energy consumption was 5.95 Gcal/TCS achieved in November, 2020.
Specific energy consumption is a key indicator of the overall efficiency of any plant. The unwavering efforts of the collective with greater thrust on further improving the techno-economics under the leadership of RSP CEO Dipak Chattaraj, have helped in achieving the feat. The CEO has been emphasizing on achieving specific energy consumption of less than 6Gal/TCS on a continual basis.
The Energy Management Department (EMD) of the plant has been playing an instrumental role in the campaign through a myriad of measures. The department has been organising a series of training-cum-awareness programmes at Safety Training Hall to sensitise and motivate employees to achieve the goal of specific energy consumption less than 6Gal/TCS. Around 600 employees of major production departments have been covered in the current financial year.
