RSP sets new record in single day crude steel production

ROURKELA, JAN 4: Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has created a new record by producing 13,147 tonnes of crude steel in a single day.

The plant achieved the feat on Thursday.

          The earlier record for single day crude steel production stood at 12,778 tonnes which was achieved on December 27, 2018, RSP said in a statement.

          The performance was largely contributed by the SMS-II (steel melting shop) department which notched up the highest-ever 11,774 tonnes of crude steel on the said day.

          The New Caster-III helped in the performance by casting the highest-ever 5,148 tonnes of crude steel.

          The SMS-II department, with the support of Traffic and Raw Materials Department, notched up another feat by pulling out 204 wagons on Thursday, surpassing the earlier record of 168 wagons, it added.

          RSP CEO Ashwini Kumar visited the Steel Melting Shop-II department today and congratulated the collective for the record performance. Lauding the collective for the recent run of success, Kumar said that there is still untapped potential in the SMS-II collective which if fully tapped, can take the plant to new heights of glory.
