Our 12 MTPA integrated pelletization facility coming up at Paradip is located in the iron ore-rich state of Odisha, India. The site also benefits from its proximity to Paradip port (3km away), giving us strategic advantages for importing coal and other raw materials, and exporting pellets.
The Paradip project is being implemented in two phases. In April 2012, a 6 MTPA pellet plant was commissioned, which is part of Phase 1. Other facilities that will be set up under Phase 1 are:
Phase 2 will comprise scaling the capacity to 12 MTPA by October 2012.
