Background

The Arjas Steel Tadipatri plant began operating in 2012 under Arjas Steel Pvt Ltd.[1] There are two captive power plants on-site producing around 70% of the energy needed at the facility (combined capacity of 21 MW).[2] The first captive power plant uses the waste heat of the coke plant (with a capacity of 15 MW) and the second captive power plant uses blast furnace gas (with a capacity of 6 MW).[1]

In 2018, six workers died and another four were injured after a carbon monoxide gas leak occurred at the plant.[3]

In 2019, another employee died after falling on a fork lift.[4]

Expansion

In 2019, Arjas Steel Ltd announced its plans to increase the capacity at the plant by 350 to 375 ttpa.[5] The company stated it would be investing Rs 200 crore on the expansion, which would be completed in 2023.[6] However, according to the OECD's steelmaking report, the completion date has been updated to 2030.[7]
