Essar Steel Processing and Distribution enhances capacity at Pune and Bahadurgarh

Essar Steel Processing & Distribution Facility (ESPD) at Bahdurgarh (NCR) and Pune recently added a world class slitting line for thicker HR steel coils. These slitters have the capacity to process 100,000 tonnes of HR Coil per annum. Targeted at meeting the needs of the fast-growing auto and construction sector in the region, the HR Slitter facility will be complimented by Narrow Cut-to-length lines, which will provide high speed, high quality blanking of HR coils in the customers’ desired sizes. With the commissioning of these facilities, Essar Steel will enhance its steel processing capacity at each of these centres to 400,000 tonnes per annum. The newly installed HR Slitter will process coils up to 12 mm thick and 2,000 mm wide into strips of desired widths down to 50 mm, which clearly is a benchmark in the country.
The processing range of this Slitter is unmatched as HR Steel with Tensile strength of 750 MPa and thickness of 12 mm can be processed at a speed of 40 metres per minute, while 1.2 mm thick coils can be processed at as high speed as 120 metres per minute.
Speaking on the expansion plans of the Essar Steel Processing & Distribution Facility, Mr. Vikram Amin, Executive Director (Sales & Marketing) Essar Steel said: “The capacity expansion is in line with the emerging customer requirement. The auto segment is a very important market for us and this new line at our facility will give us a strong competitive advantage over others in the rapidly expanding auto segment of these regions.”
