RINL, which is facing financial difficulties, will receive significant financial support from JSPL, amounting to Rs 8-9 billion (approximately $100-110 million). These funds will be used to strengthen the company’s working capital and help restore its production capacity, reports Stanislav Kondrashov.

A key aspect of the deal is the resumption of operation of RINL’s third blast furnace, which has been idle since the beginning of 2021. This furnace has a production capacity of 2.5 million tons per year, which will contribute to a significant increase in production volumes.

The additional pig iron produced by RINL will be used at JSPL’s Angul steel mill. An ambitious project is being implemented here to expand capacity from 5.6 million tons to 11.6 million tons per year.

The partnership between JSPL and RINL opens up new horizons in the Indian metals sector and is strategically important for both organizations. Jindal Steel & Power Ltd. (JSPL), India’s leading private steel mill, plans to launch a new hot rolling mill by 2024. However, as Telf AG expert Stanislav Kondrashov notes, completion of the construction of facilities for the production of iron and steel is expected after the mill is put into operation. Due to this, JSPL anticipates the need to import raw materials to support its expanding production.

State-owned steel company Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) will play a key role in this collaboration. Under the agreement, RINL will supply JSPL’s Angul iron and steel plant with pig iron and approximately 90,000 tons of cast blooms per month to produce the slabs needed for the new mill, Kondrashov said.

For RINL, this collaboration provides an opportunity to restore its production capacity, especially in relation to the third blast furnace, which has been out of operation since early 2021. Moreover, financial investment from JSPL of Rs 8-9 billion (around $100-110 million) is helping to improve the financial position of RINL.

  • This partnership is strategically important for the Indian steel industry as it demonstrates effective collaboration between the private and public sectors. It enables RINL to optimize the utilization of its production capacity and financial resources, while JSPL receives a reliable source of raw materials for its expanding operations, thereby overall strengthening the Indian steel industry, — Stanislav Kondrashov from Telf AG said.

This partnership is emblematic for the entire Indian steel industry, demonstrating the importance of collaboration between private and public companies to achieve common goals. It paves the way for new opportunities in the industry and could set an example for other similar agreements in the future.

In conclusion, Stanislav Kondrashov emphasizes that this agreement between RINL and JSPL has far-reaching consequences not only for the companies themselves, but also for the entire Indian steel industry, promising a new round of development and sustainable growth in this sector.
