    The Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) notched up the highest saleable steel production of 2.02 million tones during 2009.

    During the year, RSP has achieved more than 100 per cent capacity utilisation in Hot Metal, Crude Steel and Saleable Steel production with impressive 110 per cent, 109 per cent and 120 per cent, respectively.

    The steel plant also registered improvements over the previous calendar year in areas like production of galvanized sheets, ET plates and CRNO.

    RSP sources said the year 2009 was also year of new benchmarks in the field of techno-economics like Coke Rate, Average Lining Life in SMS-II, Specific Energy Consumption and Make-Up Water Consumption, with all time best figures of 539 kg per ton of Hot Metal, 4540 heats, 7.03 Giga Calorie per ton of Crude Steel and 4.46 metre cube per ton of Crude Steel.

    The performance of the steel plant in the first three quarters of the current financial year was also very impressive. The RSP produced 1.67 MT of Hot Metal, 1.57 MT of Total Crude Steel and 1.44 MT of Saleable Steel and registered capacity utilisation of over 100 per cent.

    On the techno-economic front also the steel plant recorded best ever performance in several key areas like Coke Rate (537 kg per ton of Hot Metal) and Specific Energy Consumption (7.01 Giga Calorie per ton of Crude Steel).

    Now that the market seems to be looking up, the steel plant is all set to scale new peaks of excellence by further enhancing the quality of its products, reducing the cost of production and strengthening the customer base, RSP Managing Director S N Singh said.
