Steel Authority of India Limited’s Rourkela Plant announced that its ERW Pipe Plant has broken 39 year record by producing 552 tonnes of pipes on 25 September 2022 to achieve the highest ever single day production. The earlier best single day production of the unit was 542 tonnes achieved on 24 March 1983. The feat has been achieved through concerted efforts of the pipe plant collective with well-coordinated support from Production Planning & Control, Research & Control Lab, Computer & Information Technology and Traffic & Raw Materials Department and all other associated agencies. There was meticulous planning and execution beginning from ensuring coils availability to seamless logistics in the production chain of HR coil charging, processing, testing and finished pipe stacking in the yard. The electrical & mechanical maintenance also worked relentlessly to maintain the maximum equipment availability and zero delays.
