Tata Steel’s journey on its 2MT expansion programme started on July 1, 2005. The first step has been taken by deciding the order on M/s Outokumpu and L&T for setting up 2MT 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 Steel Works. The sintering process makes iron ore fines suitable for use in iron making in blast furnace.
The one-million-tonne expansion
programme at Jamshedpur is near its completion. Tata Steel
has now initiated a further 2MT expansion programme
in line with its vision of becoming a 15MT steel company
