Durgapur steel plant was set up in the late fifties with an initial production capacity of 1 MPTA (million ton per annum) crude steel which was progressively increased to 1.8 MTPA during the last modernization in nineties with the prime objective of achieving higher level of production, improvement in productivity and quality, conservation of energy, reduction in cost of production & minimization of environmental pollution.
DSP is currently implementing its Modernisation & Expansion Plan (Phase-I) with main objectives:
Plant is equipped with CO-BF-BOF process of steel making. New facilities have been added after the last modernization in nineties – two new rebuilt coke oven batteries, CDI in Blast Furnaces, three Ladle Furnaces, one Bloom caster, one bloom-cum-round caster and a new Medium Structural Mill. Plant is poised for crude steel production almost 100% through concast route.
Unique feature of this plant is its Wheel & Axle Plant for making forged wheels and axles catering to Indian Railways. Wheels are tested in International Test House and found of higher standard. Over the years plant has developed various types of wheels as per need of Railways.
