New Delhi/ Visakhapatnam: PK Rath, the Chairman & Managing Director (CMD) of RINL-Vizag Steel Plant today inaugurated a guard pond at Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. On the occasion, Rath congratulated the projects and the works collective for completing the project within the stipulated time. He also said that RINL is always at the forefront in implementing the environment-friendly measures.
The guard ponds are 'safe-guard' mechanisms for preventing discharge of 'untreated or abnormal' effluents into the marine environment. In line with the statutory directives, RINL constructed guard ponds at a cost of Rs 10 crores. This guard pond has four ponds with each pond having a capacity of 9,600 cubic meters for storing two days of treated effluent from coke ovens. Once the water is stored, it shall be permitted to be discharged into the marine environment after its quality is cross-checked by Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board (APPCB). This ensures that 100 percent of the effluent being discharged into the marine environment is done only after it meets the prescribed norms. This is one more environment-friendly measures taken by RINL to protect the surrounding environment.
In this inauguration programme RINL-VSP's Director (Personnel) KC Das, Director (Commercial) DK Mohanty, Director (Projects) KK Ghosh, Director (Operations) AK Saxena, Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) KV Nagi Reddy, EDs, CGMs, other senior officials and trade union leaders participated.
