Jindal Stainless plans to install a direct rolling, annealing, and pickling line (DRAP-L). This new line will have the capacity of around 700,000mt of cold-rolled, stainless steel strips of 200, 300, and 400 series annually. The project will be commissioned by the end of 2022.
Andritz Metals will be supplying DRAP-L to Jindal Stainless Steel including services like terminal equipment, the furnace and pickling section, S6-high rolling mills, skin pass mill among others. The new line would increase capacity and efficiency. In 2008, Andritz had set up two annealing and pickling lines for Jindal Stainless at Odisha.
Jindal Stainless currently has an annual capacity of 1mn mt with a product mix of ferroalloys, stainless steel products, and metallurgical coke. Its stainless steel products include slabs, HRCs, Hot Rolled Annealed, and Pickled (HRAP) Coil, Cold Rolled Annealed, and Pickled coils and plates.
