Rourkela: Rourkela Steel Plant CEO G S Prasad stresses on need for production of high quality special product to increase profitability. He said this while interacting with employees of different departments and congratulating them for meeting the APP Targets in the month of August, 2012.
On 1st September, Prasad accompanied by SN Roy, ED (Works) visited Coke Ovens, Blast Furnaces, Steel Melting Shop-II, Sintering Plant-II and Hot Strip Mill. At all places he greeted the employees and congratulated them for their success in meeting the Performance targets.
Everywhere he stressed on safety and for taking all possible steps for reducing the input costs. Reduction in consumption of the costly imported coal by at least 2% would help us increase our profits.
Use of scrap along with Hot Metal would increase yield in SMS while increase of casting speed would increase the number of blows. In a scenario in which the NSR is particularly low, we have to aim for producing special steel products of high quality, the CEO said. He reposed faith in the potential of the RSP collective and exhorted them to keep up the good work and strive for excellence. The employees on their part assured the CEO to do all things possible to meet the expectations of the management.
