The ferro alloys production during the year stood at 83,290 tons. There were challengesin procuring the chrome ore from domestic sources at cost effective prices, which impactedthe overall production and the capacity utilizations during the year. However, in order toreduce the costs, the Company worked on imported low Grade chrome ore from Gulf, improvingchromium recoveries & higher usage of hard lumpy ore & replacing usage of cokewith anthracite coal. The Company has also taken up the matter with various Governmentagencies to rationalize the chrome ore bidding process. The operations at 250 MW thermalpower plant were adversely affected on account of higher input prices of thermal coal anddrop in prices of surplus power sold to the state Grid. It operated mostly on imported lowash coal from Indonesia blended with Indian coal. Both the two power plants were producingpower and generated around 1089.53 million units (net), of which around 34.13 millionunits were exported to Hisar plant. The power plant has achieved highest ever PLF of107.19% on 22nd January, 2013. It also achieved PLF of more than 100% for many daysconsistently during the 4th Quarter.

The production was less during the year2012-13 due to Power restrictions being imposed by the APEPDCL from September’2011onwards.

5) Technology absorption, adaptation and innovation


I. Efforts made, in brief, towards technological absorption, adaptation and innovation

- Entire range of Duplex Grades of Stainless Steel including Lean Grades developed. Thegrades have varied applications in Oil & Gas, Desalination and Paper Industry. Forpenetrating these markets approvals from bodies such as EIL India, PDO Oman, Qatar Oil,ARMCO, Saudi Arabia are sought and are in advanced stages of getting our product and plantapproval for Duplex Grades. Commercial supplies to these major Customers is expected tocommence shortly.

- Successful installation and deployment of Automatic Ultrasonic Testing Machine atJajpur Plant having capability to automatically scan the entire surface of the Platescritically. The System can also test plates of lower thickness down upto 6mm. This isfirst system of its kind in India and has enabled us to cater to the prestigious order ofSS Plates for Atomic Power Installation of NRB, BARC.

- Further adaption of 409L Grade to enable Automobiles Engine Exhaust SystemManufacturers to manufacture Silencer Components where shapes have become more complexafter introduction of Euro5 norms for two wheelers and passenger cars.

- TUV Nord, Germany, has granted us CPD/89/106/EEC, European Certification CE therebyaccording approval for usage of our products for construction activities in EuropeanUnion.

- Customer Complaint handling system made more effective by placing technical personsin regions to enable a faster response to the problems faced by them.

II. Benefits derived as a result of the above efforts:

- Enabling penetration of niche markets of duplex grades in oil and gas sector.

- Successfully supplied around 3000MT of SS to NRB, BARC for atomic energyapplications. This has established our products in this fast growing sector.

- Throwing open the construction sector in EU for our products through ‘CE’Certification.

- Building customers as our partners.


Technology absorption, adaptation and innovation

A. Cold Rolling Mill:

I. Efforts made, in brief, towards technological absorption, adaptation and innovation

CRM Complex is a state-of-the-art facility with India’s only DRAP lines (DirectRolling & Annealing Pickling Lines) for cold rolling and finishing the entire gamut ofstainless steel flat products. In Line Rolling, Annealing

& Pickling for Black Coils in HAPL Line imparts different finishes like No. 1&2E and In Line Rolling through three (3) mill stands in tandem, Annealing, Pickling,Skin-Passing & Tension Levelling in CAPL Line imparts finishes like 2D & 2B whichare unique technologies adopted for the Cold Rolling segment. Process has been establishedand technology has been successfully absorbed. HAPL is in production since March,11.Production in CAPL was stabilized during the year.

II. Benefits derived as a result of the above efforts:

The cutting edge equipments are ensuring unmatched quality and cost effectiveness witha minimum carbon footprint to the environment. In contrast to prevailing SS productionfacilities, CRM complex with inline rolling-annealing-pickling facility has resulted inimproved quality and yield with minimal operating and maintenance costs. The abovebenefits coupled with higher coil weight and line speeds ensure cost-competitiveness.

B. Steel Melting Shop

I. Efforts made, in brief, towards technological absorption, adaptation and innovation

Usage of DPP (purging mechanism in Furnace bottom) and continuous Nitrogen purgingpractice are in use for Carbon steel manufacturing to reduce hot areas in furnace whereuse of hot-metal and profuse oxygen is done. This practice has been adopted in our furnacemaking stainless steel.

Transfer of ferro chrome liquid metal in its semi-molten state by rail ladle car waseffectively adopted for direct charging in EAF furnace. Induction Furnace was alsocommissioned at the scrap yard for quality of testing of imported scrap

II. Benefits derived as a result of the above efforts:

Use of Nitrogen for the purging from bottom has resulted in non stratification ofmolten liquid steel. This has helped in reducing bottom built-up and has led to uniformtemperature bath, reduced refractory consumption and improved Chromium recovery.

Charging of Ferro-Chrome liquid metal into EAF resulted in significant energy savings.

C. Hot Strip Mill

I. Efforts made, in brief, towards technological absorption, adaptation and innovation

Hot Strip Mill is provided with all latest features like digital controlled ReheatingFurnace for optimizing heat input for a uniform slab temperature, automatic width controlin Edger attached to the Roughing Stand, Coil Box, 6-Stand tandem Finishing Mill Groupwith Roll bending, Roll shifting with ‘Smart crown’ for controlling variablestrip crown and Level-2 controls for Mill operation. Another feature of the Mill isprovision of 2-Robot Plazma stations for accurately dividing heavy plates to customerlengths ahead of the cooling bed in the furnace area. The entire mill has beencommissioned and stabilized in the shortest possible time and the technology for a stableproduction in all grades of Stainless steel has been successfully absorbed.

Plate mill shop was commissioned to process the plates of required finish and size.

II. Benefits derived as a result of the above efforts:

Black Coils with strips having excellent gauge tolerance and flatness as perinternational standards could be produced which have a wide market in Pipe & Tubesector. Also the high quality strips provide a quality input to our Cold Rolling millgroup increasing the yield and cost competitiveness.

D. Thermal Captive Power Plant

I. Efforts made, in brief, towards technological absorption, adaptation and innovation

Both the power plants were operated successfully with 100% of low ash, high calorificvalue and low cost imported coal. It was used in blending with Indian coal to achieve PLFof more than 100%.

II. Benefits derived as a result of the above efforts:

100% of imported coal usage resulted in achieving highest ever PLF above 100% up to107% during 4th Quarter.

6) Foreign Exchange Earnings & Outgo

a) Activities relating to exports, initiatives taken to increase exports, developmentof new export markets for products and services and export plans

Financial year 2012-13 saw JSL Odisha’s Products gaining acceptance worldwide. Theexpanded product range from the new mill has opened new markets and product segments forthe Company. Company managed to gain market share in matured markets like Europe and USA.The Company also initiated approval process with Global majors in Petroleum sector and hasachieved encouraging results, the approvals are likely to come through in the first halfof 2013-14 and will enable JSL to enter the high end Petroleum projects market.

Exports grew by 73% and reached 2,41,272 MT in FY12-13 as compared to 1,39,803 MT inFY11-12. The biggest jump came from 300 series and 400 series which grew by 246% and 194%respectively from FY 11-12 to FY 12-13. In the new year, focus would be to build OEMbusiness with special focus on Auto and White Goods sector.
