Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) on Wednesday commissioned the country's largest billet caster plant at Angul in Odisha.

The billet caster plant, which would cast molten steel into semis of various sizes and shapes, would help the company to produce various long products used in construction sector. "We have commissioned India's largest capacity billet caster plant in Angul within a record time of one year; setting yet another benchmark in the country," JSPL's Managing Director and Group CEO Ravi Uppal said in a statement.

JSPL has a 2.5 mtpa steel making capacity at Angul and the company plans to raise it to six mtpa.
Commissioning of the billet caster plant would enable JSPL to produce long products in addition to flat products already produced at the Angul plant.
