SAIL has planned to set up a Steel Processing Unit (SPU) at Village Behjam, District Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh. The SPU is being set up with a view to make steel available to consumers in rural areas and thus directly serve a large number of small consumers.
The unit will produce 100,000 tonnes of TMT bars per annum in various sizes as per local customer requirements. Land for the unit has been acquired by SAIL at village Behjam. The total cost of this project will be around Rs. 100 crores.
Setting up of the unit will help in overall growth and development of the region. This project will provide direct and indirect employment to number of people. This project will be completed within one and half years time approximately and the project activity will start shortly.
SAIL at present is setting up steel processing units in different states where it does not have any integrated steel production facility. This shall facilitate meeting the local market demand for tailor-made steel products and thereby help increase per capita steel consumption in rural areas.
The SPUs will use products like billets, produced by SAIL's main integrated steel plants, which will be converted to manufacture a wide variety of steel items that can be utilized by the common user, for construction of buildings and various structural works.
