Steel Authority of India Limited’s Bhilai Steel Plant has recorded higher production in fiscal 2010-11.

A statement issued by the company said that BSP has finished the financial year 2010-11 with record production of 5.71 million tones of hot metal, 5.33 million tonnes crude steel and 4.57 million tonnes of saleable steel. Best ever loading of 4.53 million tonnes saleable steel has also been recorded by SAIL's flagship plant in 2010-11.

The previous best figures are 5.39 million tonnes of hot metal, 5.18 million tonnes crude steel, 4.49 million tonnes saleable steel and 4.43 million tonnes of saleable steel loading, all recorded in fiscal 2008-09.

As compared to the performance in previous financial year 2009-10, the plant has registered growth of 6.3%, 4.3%, 6.7% and 4.3% in hot metal, crude steel, finished steel and saleable steel production.

A record high of 16.33 million tonnes of total raw material has been handled by the plant's ore handling plant during the year.

With stocks at existing captive iron ore mines in Dalli-Rajhara fast depleting, revamping of some facilities and other measures were taken up on priority at Bhilai's iron ore complex during the year to meet the requirement of ore.

The overall higher levels of production in 2010-11 has been facilitated by the plant's mines department that has registered 7.7 million tonnes iron ore production during the year, an increase of 4.2% over that in last fiscal year 2009-10.

A significant achievement about BSP's performance in 2010-11 was the increase in proportion of value added special steel production in total saleable steel production. As compared to 62 per cent in previous fiscal year, the share of value-added special steel production, which includes rails, plates, TMT products and EQ wire rods, rose to 64.5 per cent in 2010-11.
