RSP's contract labour awarded under 'Instant Recognition'

The contract labour were awarded for changing the broken skid pads in record time because of which the furnace could be lighted up within 14 hours
Rourkela: A special award function under 'Instant Recognition Scheme' was recently organised at Plate Mill Department of SAIL's Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP). RSP's Chief General Manager (Plate Mill) D Dutta was the chief guest on the occasion and presented the awards to four contract labour of Messrs Pankaja Enterprises. On the occasion other officers and employees of the department were present. The contract labour were awarded for changing the broken skid pads an in record time because of which the furnace could be lighted up within 14 hours. It may be noted that the Plate Mill re-heating furnace is used to reheat slabs from CCM-1 and CCM-2 to the rollable temperature of 1,280°C. Slabs are carried inside the furnace from charging end to discharging end with hydraulic mechanism and skid pipe arrangement. Skid pads are welded on fixed and movable skid pipe at a regular interval. Each and every skid pad is required to be in position for a smooth transfer of slabs inside the furnace. Three skid pads on the left side fixed skid had got broken as a result of which slabs were getting tilted and creating an unsafe condition. The contract labour took up this challenging job and completed the replacement with utmost safety. The programme was coordinated by RSP's General Manager (Plate Mill) Etwa Oraon.
