The JSW Odisha steel plant began operating in 2005 under Bhushan Power and Steel Ltd. Bhushan Power & Steel Ltd. was acquired by JSW Steel in September 2019, at which point ownership of the plant transferred to JSW; Tata Steel also bid to buy Bhushan Power & Steel but did not beat JSW.[1][2]

In 2021, according to the OECD and Wood Mackenzie, Bhushan Power and Steel decided to expand capacity at its plant by 2800 ttpa for its basic oxygen furnace and by 900 ttpa for its electric arc furnace, which are expected to be operational by 2022.[3] This expansion was part of a large-scale effort from both Bhushan Power and Steel and the Odisha government to increase steel capacity in the region.[4]
