VISA Steel through its subsidiary VISA SunCoke, a joint venture between VISA Steel and SunCoke energy, USA, is operating a 400,000 TPA Low Ash Metallurgical Coke Oven Plant and associated steam generation units at Kalinganagar in Odisha.
The plant is equipped with 8 Batteries of 11 Ovens each and is ideally located near the deep-draft Paradip and Dhamra Ports allowing import of Australian Coking Coal in panamax vessels.
This Coke plant is equipped with highly advanced Chinese technology with Stamp Charging facility. This technology is best suited for getting uniform granulometry in the coke with consistent physical and thermal properties in the finished product which is extremely important for the end consumers for better operation of their blast furnaces / sub-merged arc furnaces / foundries.
This advanced technology also provides for heat recovery from flue gases for generation of Clean Power. Under full capacity utilisation this plant will generate steam for about 25 MW of power generation during the Coking process.
About 35% of the production is allocated for VISA Steel’s consumption at the Blast Furnace located inside the same complex, and balance quantity is sold to other consumers.
The superior quality Coke produced by VISA SunCoke Limited results in lower coke rate and higher productivity in the Blast Furnace. The Coke produced is of consistent quality having better CSR and CRI characteristics.
