ROURKELA, JANUARY 13, 2022
In its endeavour to strengthen the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat, Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has been making all-out efforts to fulfil the requirements of customized steel products for high-profile infrastructure projects undertaken all over the country.
One such project is the Kaleswaram Lift Irrigation Project of Telangana for which RSP has so far supplied approximately 2.9 lakh tonnes of Boiler IS 2002 Gr3 and high tensile grade E300 BR plates rolled in its New Plate Mill.
Claimed to be the costliest irrigation project to be taken up in any State in India to date, the Kaleswaram Lift Irrigation Project aims to irrigate around 37 lakh acres in the 15 districts of Telangana. Besides, the project will also be providing drinking water to several small and medium towns and cities of the State, especially to Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
Notably, the 4300 mm wide New Plate Mill of RSP is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to produce a wide range of plates with close tolerances to meet stringent international standards. The Mill is consistently adding products with stringent specifications and wider varieties to its basket so as to enter high-end segments and carve out a niche for itself in the national steel firmament.
