Modernisation of Infrastructure Work in SAIL
Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) has undertaken modernization & expansion plan of five integrated steel plants at Bhilai, Durgapur, Rourkela, Bokaro & Burnpur and one special steel plant at Salem. In case of Salem Steel Plant, major facilities under modernization & expansion plan have been completed by September, 2010. The modernization & expansion of other plants are under various stages of implementation.
There had been minor slippages in completion of the expansion of Salem Steel Plant (SSP). In case of IISCO Steel Plant (ISP) expansion, there has been an increased scope of civil and structural works entailing some delay and increased cost. However, all efforts are being taken to minmise the impact of these delays. In other plants, efforts are being made to ensure that all major facilities are implemented broadly as per schedule.
