New Delhi: SAIL's Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) has clocked the best-ever monthly specific energy consumption of 5.94 Giga calories per tonne of crude steel (Gcal/TCS) in January 2021. The remarkable achievement in the key techno-economic front compliments the record production performances by major units of the Steel Plant. Notably, the previous best monthly specific energy consumption was 5.95 Gcal/TCS achieved in November 2020.
It is worth mentioning here that specific energy consumption is a key indicator of the overall efficiency of any plant. The unwavering efforts of the collective with greater thrust on further improving the techno-economic under the leadership of RSP's CEO Dipak Chattaraj have helped in achieving the feat. The CEO has been emphasising on achieving specific energy consumption of less than 6Gal/TCS on a continual basis.
The Energy Management Department (EMD) of the plant has been playing an instrumental role in the campaign through a myriad of measures. The department has been organising a series of training cum awareness programmes at Safety Training Hall to sensitise and motivate employees to achieve the goal of specific energy consumption less than 6Gal/TCS. Around 600 employees of major production departments have been covered in the current financial year.
Inspired by the vision of 'Atma Nirbhar Bharat' the RSP collective is leaving no stone unturned to excel on every front and produce quality steel at the lowest cost so as to make the country self-sufficient in steel production.
