ANUPAM wins order worth `130-cr from SAIL
India’s largest EOT crane manufacturing company, Anupam Industries Ltd., has been awarded an order valued more than `130-crores from Steel Authority of India Ltd.’s Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) to supply 22 cranes and hoists of various capacities. These cranes will be used for various applications at RSP’s plate mill modernisation plant based at Rourkela, in Orissa. The scope of work would involve design, engineering, supply, installation, commissioning and training. The project is scheduled for completion in June 2014.
Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) is the leading steel-making company in the country. RSP presently has the capacity to produce two million tonnes of hot metal, 1.9 million tonnes of crude steel and 1.67 million tonnes of saleable steel. It is SAIL’s only plant that produces silicon steels for the power sector, high quality pipes for the oil & gas sector, and tin plates for the packaging industry.
Anupam cranes will be supplied in various capacities ranging from 15T to 175T capacity with different applications for RSP’s slab yard, slab charging bay, furnace entry, mill aisle, roll shop, heavy plate area, motor bay, finished plate despatch bay and cross bay. These cranes are customised to carry out specialised operations at the steel plant.
One of the cranes supplied for the slab yard is the 75T duplex motorised scissor type tong with maximum grip, 360 degree swivelling facility and adjustable stools for lifting the slabs. The 175+175T EOT crane has lifting beam with motorised central hook of 200T capacity at the beam centre.
Anupam will also design and manufacture special 60T magnet cranes with telescopic spreader beam for handing of steel plates. These cranes are packed with high-end features, such as anti-collision device, travel restriction and load control, DSL system, twin motor drive via planetary gear box for main hoist motion, emergency brake, and rope oil lubrication system.
“Anupam has been supplying customised cranes to SAIL from past few years and this large order reinforces SAIL’s trust in Anupam as the best lifting solutions provider to the integrated steel industry,” says Mehul Patel, Managing Director of Anupam Industries Ltd. These heavy duty cranes will play a significant role in RSP’s steel production. With this order, Anupam will continue its endeavour to supply high quality customised cranes at competitive price to the steel sector globally.
