Rourkela Steel Plant bags mammoth order despite COVID-19 situation


Bhubaneswar/Rourkela: The Rourkela Steel Plant on Sunday said it has bagged an order of over 6,000 tonnes of special grade plates for supplying to the European market.

This has elated the RSP authorities as it bagged the order when the market is in recession due to coronavirus. The Rourkela Steel Plant is a unit of Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL).

The RSP said in a statement said it will be exporting CE-marked plates conforming to the European standards.

The ”CE” is defined as the European Union’s (EU) mandatory conformity marking for regulating goods sold within the European Economic Area.

The mill has got an approval of DNV-GL (Det Norske Veritas-Bermanischer Lloyd) business assurance to produce CE- marked plates for the European market and has been exporting its products to different countries.

RSP sources said the order was bagged by RSP a few weeks after it completed exports of 60,000 tonnes of special grade slab to China and 2,700 tonnes of plates to Vietnam.

The statement said the RSP is making an endeavour to generate revenue in one of the most sluggish market environments the world has ever witnessed.
