Maharatna enterprise Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) has said that it supplied 80 percent steel required for construction of the Sardar Sarovar Project unveiled by prime minister Narendra Modi. 
 
SAIL supplied around 85,000 tonnes of steel for the entire Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd project, comprising all the canals throughout Gujarat, which are connected to the Narmada river and dam. The project is the second largest concrete gravity dam (by volume) and has the world’s third largest spillway discharging capacity.
 
It is a part of a large hydraulic engineering project involving the construction of a series of large irrigation and hydroelectric multi-purpose dams on the Narmada river. One of the 30 dams planned on river Narmada, Sardar Sarovar Dam is the largest structure to be built. The project will irrigate more than 1,90,000 sq ft of area, most of it in drought prone areas of Kutch and Saurashtra. The total installed capacity of the power facilities is 1,450 MW.
