Times of India reported that ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India has designed and manufactured the country’s first indigenously developed specialist-grade steel plates 16Mo3. They are meant for use in heavy water reactors for the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd. A senior AM/NS official said “These special steel plates were shipped after a flagging-off ceremony at AM/NS India’s Hazira steel plant on June 29.”

He added "This is the first time that a domestic supplier has been able to meet the high raw material and manufacturing criteria laid down by N PCI L for critical-class equipment of this grade. Previously, such plates were acquired from overseas. Due to a historical lack of specialist manufacturing capability among domestic plate mills, India's nuclear programme has always imported critical alloy steel grades from Europe.”

16Mo3-grade plates are among the most critical internal components of steam generators, operating under extreme temperature, pressure and radioactive consitions
