Largest blast furnace at Burnpur

The largest blast furnace in India, ‘Kalyani’, was blown-in at SAIL’s IISCO Steel Plant at Burnpur. The 4160 cubic metres, state-of-the-art furnace is the biggest blast furnace operating in the country.

The furnace is equipped with advanced features like high top pressure operation coupled with top pressure recovery turbine. The environment-friendly furnace not only ensures minimum emissions and recovery of waste energy to the fullest, it also has a closed-loop cooling system resulting in almost zero water discharge.

This full-fledged integrated steel plant, IISCO is among   India’s oldest steel plants. Established as an industrial enterprise in 1918, IISCO produced iron from an open-top blast furnace in West Bengal for the first time in 1922.  

SAIL is India’s largest steel producing company with a turnover of Rs. 49,350 crore (for 2013-14). The company is among the seven Maharatnas of Central Public Sector Enterprises. SAIL has five integrated steel plants, three special steel plants and one subsidiary are spread  in different parts of the country.  SAIL’s wide ranges of long and flat steel products are much in demand in the domestic as well as the international market.
