Today:-July – JSPL’s ‘Made in India’ rails to target Metro Rail & High Speed Rail Projects
New Delhi, 6th September, 2016: Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) has achieved a landmark
by becoming India’s first and only manufacturer of ‘Head Hardened Rails’ for modern hi-speed
trains and metros. The landmark achievement also propels JSPL into the elite club of 7 global
steel majors, who have the capability to manufacture head hardened rails in the world.
The plant with an investment of Rs. 200 Crores, is capable of delivering 30,000 MT of rails per
month and has been set up in technical collaboration with M/S SMS MEER, Germany. Head
Hardening technology entails a special heat treatment process which requires very precise
temperature control to achieve nearly 50% higher hardness as compared to a normal rail.
On the remarkable achievement, Mr. Naveen Jindal, Chairman – JSPL said: “In line with the
Government’s thrust on ‘Make in India’, JSPL has successfully completed trials of Head Hardened
Rails and is all set for commercial production. JSPL being the only producer of Head Hardened
Rails in the country, is poised to play an important role in the growth of India’s rail
infrastructure.”
Mr. Ravi Uppal, MD & Group CEO, while speaking on the occasion, said – “The government’s
renewed impetus on railway infrastructure development and the proposed introduction of high
speed and bullet trains necessitates the establishment of domestic facility to fulfill the need of
Indian Railways. We envisage our indigenously produced rail product line which includes India’s
longest rails and head hardened rails, to be the preferred choice for the upcoming metro and
high speed rail corridors in India”.
Hitherto, such rails used in Metro projects as well as high speed freight corridors have been
imported. JSPL’s indigenously produced, international quality rails – besides offering substantial
economy in prices, will facilitate delivery in shorter times and smaller order quantities when
required, thereby reducing the dependence on imports as well as savings of precious foreign
exchange.
The Ministry of Railways has a stated budget of Rs. 8.6 lakh crore over the next 5 years for
modernization of Indian Railways. The government’s target of laying 7 kms of new Rail Tracks
everyday (2800 kms during this fiscal) and envisaged target of up to 19 Kms per day in 2018-19,
is encouraging and offers tremendous opportunity for the indigenous industry. Based on the
current demand projections, India has a requirement of over 1 Million (10 lakh) Tonnes of Head
Hardened Rails over the next 5 years. At its current capacity, JSPLs head hardened rail facility
can produce 30,000 tonnes of rails per month i.e. around 3.6 lakh tonne per annum.
JSPL has the unique distinction of producing the longest single piece track rails measuring 121
m at its Rail and Universal Beam Mill in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh. JSPL’s rails have been found to be
significantly superior in terms of lower rail wear & residual stress, higher strength, enhanced
safety & cost efficiency and improved life cycle. We have already supplied our rails to many
prestigious projects including the Dedicated Freight Corridor and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation
amongst others.
