Chandrapur Ferro Alloy Plant, (CFP) erstwhile Maharashtra Elektrosmelt Ltd. (MEL) has became a Unit of SAIL w.e.f. 12/7/2011. Chandrapur Ferro Alloy Plant is the only Public Sector Unit engaged in production of Manganese based Ferro Alloys in the Country
Location: The plant is situated amongst picturesque surroundings at Chandrapur (Maharashtra). It is located 166 km away from Nagpur on Delhi-Chennai rail route and is well connected by rail & road to the major cities of India.
CFP has an installed capacity of 1,00,000 TPY Ferro Manganese. The product range of CFP includes High Carbon Ferro Manganese, Silico Manganese and Medium/Low Carbon Ferro Manganese. The Plant is accredited with Quality Assurance Certificate ISO 9001:2008. CFP's major production facilities include two nos. of 33 MVA Submerged Electric Arc Furnaces for the production of ferro alloys, two nos. Manganese Ore Sintering Plants, Furnace gas based Power Plant, Mechanized Crushing and Screening System for Ferro Alloys and 1 MVA Electric Arc Furnace for the production of MC/LC Ferro Manganese with Lime Calcination and Manganese Ore Roasting Unit.

Technological Developments: Over the years, this plant has emerged as a leader in ferroalloy technology with technological developments in many areas like raw material preparation, raw material substitution, furnace operation, ferroalloy casting and processing etc. The latest technological development being state of the art ‘Layer Casting Technology’ for casting molten Ferro Alloys and Ferro Alloy Processing Unit (Crusher) first of its kind in India.
Expansion Plan: It has been planned to put up 1 No. 45 MW Sub-merged Arc Furnace to produce around 90, 000 tonnes of High Carbon Ferro Manganese or 70,000 tonnes of Silico Manganese, with an investment of around Rs.185 crores at Chandrapur, in next two years. Setting up of a 4.00 MW (furnace gas based) Power Plant with an investment of around Rs.38 crores is also envisaged. It has also been planned to put up a Captive Power Plant to meet total requirement of power of the Plant, in near future.
