SAIL’s Bhilai plant has commissioned its Universal Rail Mill which will produce rail of 130 meters. The new URM was set up with an investment of Rs. 12,000 million. The state-of- the-art URM, will take the plants total capacity to produce rails at two million tonne per annum (mtpa). It will be the largest production capacity for rails in any single location for a plant world over. The rails rolled from this new URM will enable SAIL to produce rails with improved surface quality, less residual stress and improved straightness. As a par of expansion programme, the company has also set up a modern welding complex with fully automated flash butt welding system.
