4.0 MODERNISATION & EXPANSION SCHEMES

Subsequent to expansion to 3.925 MT of crude steel, further investments have


been made at BSP under Addition/ Modification/ Replacement schemes. The major
schemes being Oxygen Plant-2 commissioned in Nov'97, Sinter Plant-3 in Sep'01 and
Long Rail Facilities in Rail & Structural Mill in Aug'04. BSP is still making close to
50% of its total crude steel through the outdated technology of twin hearth furnace
(THF) - ingot casting. This technology is having lower yield and is energy intensive.
Incremental modernisation done time to time in the past and carefully crafted
production strategies have helped Bhilai to get the best possible volume and
quality from its existing units & equipment. The Plant has been operating beyond
rated capacities for 17 consecutive years now.
4.1 The Ministry of Steel has laid out grand plans for the Indian Steel Industry.
SAIL is in the process of modernizing and expanding its production units, raw
material resources and other facilities to maintain its dominant position in
the Indian steel market. With India's largest steel producer SAIL having
embarked upon a massive modernization and expansion plan to increase hot
metal production capacity to 23.46 MTPA by 2012-13, its flagship unit, Bhilai
Steel Plant (BSP) is gearing up to achieve the 7.0 MTPA crude steel
production target by the year 2012-13.

4.2 Bhilai is the sole supplier of world class rails to Indian Railways,
manufacturer of heavy and the widest plates, TMT rebars and wire rods of
superior grade and quality than that of other manufacturers. The
modernisation will further strengthen its capabilities and increase SAIL's
market share and brand name.The broad objectives of BSP's Modernisation&
Expansion is to enhance capacities, phase out low yield and energy intensive
units, broadening and value-addition in product mix, meeting requirement of
Indian Railways upto 1.5 MTPA of class A heavier rails, adoption of energy
efficient and environment-friendly latest technology and improvement of
logistics.

4.3 Implementation of the modernization & expansion plan to enhance crude


steel capacity to 7 MT at an estimated cost of Rs 17,265 crore is the priority
of the management and leadership of Bhilai Steel Plant. With several big
projects notching good progress on ground including some in advanced
stages, and work begun on four major projects after some award of
contracts, the Plant's Project Deptt has been a beehive of activity throughout
the last and the current fiscal year. The highest ever capital expenditure of
Rs. 3708.50 Crores (till March 2013) has been incurred in 2012-13 as against the
capital expenditure of Rs 3020 crore in 2011-12, Rs1772 crore in 2010-11,
Rs1400 crore in '09-10 and Rs 850 crore incurred in fiscal 08-09.

5.0 IT DEPLOYMENT AT BHILAI STEEL PLANT - DEPLOYMENT OF MODERN BUSINESS


TOOLS

As an organisation up-to-date with the use of modern IT applications and IT-aided


business tools, Bhilai Steel Plant is by any yardstick a modern and progressive
organisation. The fact that more and more employees are now becoming familiar
with the many uses and benefits of BSPs intranet facility is ample testimony of the
increasing popularity of IT tools within the workforce. Besides the savings in terms
of time and money wasted in taking numerous printouts, the use of IT-aided tools
has also saved retired employees of having to move from one office to another.

At C&IT Deptt, many initiatives have been taken in 2012, some of which
are :

Implementation of Online Last Pay Certificate (LPC) module leading to the


elimination of various redundant processes and enabling generation of LPC by
Wages as and when required. It has resulted in faster payments to ex-
employees, EFBS settlement and sending of documents for transferred
employees.

Another initiative is that i-collect and Power Jyoti facility of State Bank of
India has been configured for revenue bills, school fees and renewal of
Medi-claim for ex-employees/spouse and project fee for trainees, leading to
reduction in printing and unnecessary physical movement.

The implementation of Medical Token booking facility through internet and


SMS for reminders of token has also benefitted the individual employee.
Another facility is that Form-16 with Digital signatures for the employees
have been generated and distributed, thereby eliminating physical
signatures.

The C & IT department has also facilitated for contract labourers to be


registered through biometric system. This has enhanced safety, security and
eliminates duplicate registration and validation on labourlicence. The C &
IT Deptt has also facilitated implementation of HR & Payroll for SRU (Steel
Refractory Unit) Bhilai in Oracle RDBMS, implemented at BSPs Server and
operated from SRU.

A new system for generating the draft forwarding note was implemented
that has led to faster handing over of wagon to reduce detention. The C &
IT Deptt has also implemented remote printing of invoices at Bokaro Steel
Plant, Salem Steel Pant, Alloy Steel Plant Durgapur and Durgapur Steel
Plant. This will enable availability of the invoice documents at the plant
before the material arrives.

Going Further Ahead as a Progressive Business Org. with MES

What has made BSP an even more progressive business organisation is the use
of IT-aided modern business tools. Becoming the first in SAIL to have
accepted the challenge of going in for deployment of Enterprise Resource
Planning or ERP, Bhilaians proved wrong all critics of successful deployment
of ERP in domestic integrated steel plants, and after lot of preparations,
successfully deployed ERP on 1st April 2009. On the 3RD January 2012, the
Plant completed 1000 days of ERP-SAP deployment. MES successfully completed
one year of its operations in the first week of July 2013.

During the Calendar Year 2012, BSP crossed another major milestone in the
deployment of modern IT-aided business tools by BSP with the stabilization
of theproduction and quality system of Manufacturing Execution System
(MES). A co-requirement of ERP, MES has been stabilised in RSM, SMS 2, PPC,
Plate Mill and Quality departments. Based on technology framework provided
by M/s POSCO ICT, Korea, MES has been implemented to provide better order
progressing and planning, scheduling and rescheduling and execution of heats
at converter, better order management and quality tracking of plate
production.

The Rail Mill stream was released through loading reports in January 2012,
and RSM module has already started operating since April 2012.The roll
management system for RSM has also been completed. The Plants Steel
Melting Shop 2 and Plate Mill joined MES with its release for SMS PPC Plate
Mill stream in June 2012. The inaugural function took place in Plate Mill on
22nd June.
