Durga - India’s largest blast furnace; now operational

“Durga”, the largest blast furnace of the country has become operational at the Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP), a unit of Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL).  Built at a cost of about Rs 1600 crore, the furnace has a useful volume of 4060 cubic metres, and will increase SAIL’s hot metal capacity by 2.5 million tonnes per annum.  SAIL chief,  C S Verma inaugurated the new Slab Caster at the Steel Melting Shop-II of RSP, which can cast slabs of up to 2500 mm width.

     With the start of the new state-of-the-art furnace, hot metal capacity at RSP will increase to 4.5 million tonnes per annum from its present capacity of 2 MTPA. With a daily hot metal production of 8000 tonnes per day, the furnace has an enhanced life of 20 years. The environment-friendly furnace ensures minimum emissions and recovers waste energy to the fullest; it also has a closed-loop cooling system resulting in almost zero water discharge.
