SAIL chairman Anil Kumar Chaudhary has directed officials to complete the new 3.0 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) hot strip mill (HSM) at Rourkela steel plant before the beginning of next fiscal. 

 
The new mill is slated to augment the plant’s hot rolled steel making capacity along with enabling RSP to produce advance grade HR coils. It will help RSP to cater to the high end hot rolled steel segment and facilitate for supplying to cold rolling mills producing auto grade steel, as per requirement.
 
Chaudhary inaugurated additional heat treatment line (AHTL) of the special plate plant (SPP) of RSP. The SPP has been catering to the needs of the nation’s defence and research programmes and has supplied steel for India’s indigenous defence projects like INS Vikrant and INS Kamorta. Built at a cost of Rs 155 crore, this AHTL facility will augment the heat treatment capacity of SPP and will enable the plant to meet the enhanced demand for defence grade special steel of various dimensions. 
 
Different grades of plates including Spade, Jackal, DMR-249 A & B, SAIL WR-400, ASTM -537 CL-II, DMR-301 will be heat treated in the AHTL. The special plate plant unit is a pioneer in the field of special steel plates; with a diverse product profile that ranges from various grades of heat treated plates.
