The RSP has also produced the highest saleable steel of over 3.20 lakh tonne in the last month, he said.
In sinter production too, the RSP touched a new milestone by clocking 6,22,199 tonne, which is the highest- since-inception for a month and crossed the previous record of 5,96,379 tonne achieved in January 2019, he said.
“Several key units recorded more than 100 per cent of their APP (Annual Production Plan) targets. The plant made 3,86,630 tonne of hot Metal, 3,54,010 tonne of crude steel and 3,20,005 tonne of saleable steel in October, which are the highest ever figures for any month,” the RSP official said.
Rourkela Steel Plant CEO Dipak Chattaraj on Monday visited various units and departments to congratulate workers and officers for their collective teamwork.
He also emphasised the need to reduce the cost of production to achieve a better margin in the market.
