SAIL (Steel Authority of India Limited) is working on a long term strategic plan Vision 2025, which steers SAIL towards a target of 50Mtpa capacity, in line with the Prime Minister's call for production of 300Mtpa by 2025. This will not only enhance SAIL's contribution to nation building but will put SAIL amongst the top steel companies globally.|
SAIL's Chairman Chandra Shekhar Verma commented, "It gives me immense pleasure to inform my esteemed shareholders that the new 4060m3 Blast Furnace at RSP, which is the largest in the country has become operational in August, 2013. Bringing about a quantum jump of 2.5 million tonne in our hot metal capacity, this marks a new chapter in the modernization and expansion of our company." Also, he said, "It is a matter of great pride to inform you that the country has launched the first indigenously made Aircraft Carrier INS Vikrant made entirely from SAIL Steel. About 26,000 tonnes of high-grade DMR 249 A, 249 A-Z and 249 B steel has been supplied by SAIL for this prestigious project."
