A shortlist of activities where OSIL (P&E) is associated, is enumerated bellow:
M/s Sunflag Iron & Steel Co. Ltd., have a unit of DRI Plant having a rated capacity of 150,000 TPA built with overseas technology.  However, the plant operation could not be optimised over a long period.  In 1991 Sunflag approached OSIL  to assist in optimising their operation.  OSIL studied their plant parameters, identified the points of non-compatibility and recommended modifications with engineering support. The major modifications suggested are :

  • Controlled Raw Material Sizing
  • Coal Slinger System (Coal Injection)
  • Kiln Operation – Logic
  • Kiln Discharge System
  • Improvement in air sealing system and prevention of air leakage
  • Modification in kiln to cooling drum transition chute to ensure free-flow of kiln-discharge

Within six months of OSIL's association the plant performance improved to a great extent.
This project was conceived with 2x150000 TPA DRI Reactor with a provision for Power Generation and Steel Making.  It is located at Ghugus in Maharastra.  In its first phase of implementation, a 1x150000 TPA DRI Reactor was installed with all associated service units/systems by Sept. 1995.  This is the first plant, built with the first indigenous patented “OSIL technology.” OSIL engineered the total plant, supervised manufacturing of the equipment, erection of the equipment. OSIL also commissioned the plant ,successfully executed the  performance guarantee tests and obtained the PG test certificate. The plant is in operation since 1996 using coal from the mines in the vicinity of plant. The coal is highly volatile having high ash content and lower fixed carbon. The coal is very fragile and breaks down inside the kiln. No other DRI process can utilize this type of coal.
It is a 50,000 TPA Steel Billet Plant put up by OSIL at Palaspanga, Keonjhar.  The plant comprised of 2 nos. of 8.5T MF Induction Furnace, 2 Strand 4m dia. Continuous Billet Caster, 2 Nos. 20/5T EOT Crane, 2 Nos. 10T EOT Crane, Water Treatment System and other associated facilities.
The Billet Plant was put up to maximise the melting of sponge iron in steel making, thus set a trend for the steel industry.  It was conceived and put up by Project & Engineering Division of OSIL, who have rendered the following services for the project.

  • Basic engineering of 50,000 TPA Steel Billet Plant with all allied services/ facilities;
  • Procurement of plant and machinery;
  • Design and engineering of civil & structural of the plant building
  • Monitoring the project activities;
  • Supervision of erection and commissioning of the total plant and equipment;

The entire engineering and execution was done by Project & Engineering Division of OSIL. This shop has been expanded to produce 100,000 TPA steel billet with minimal investment.
It is a 1.0 MT Integrated Steel Plant, then promoted by Govt. of Orissa who approached  OSIL to be a Joint Promoter.  The total project was conceptualised by OSIL and Dr P. K. Mohanty as Director in Charge, NINL, took the responsibility of the basic design ,getting all statutory clearances, project management etc…. But later when MMTC took a substantial amount of the equity in the  project, OSIL withdrew from the panel of Promoters.  During its period of association, OSIL ,as Incharge of Project Execution, did the following activities to execute the project.

  • Several technological search visits by a team of professionals from OSIL and MECON to countries like Italy, Mexico, Canada, China for selection of plants like Blast Furnace, Sinter Plant, BOF, large size structural mill, Billet Caster, Rolling Mills etc.
  • Finalisation of the contract with ILVA, Italy for procurement of one no used Blast Furnace of capacity of 1915m3
  • Dismantling of the BF in Italy, Arrangement for refurbishing of Blast Furnace and shipping to Dubri site.     
  • Preparation of feasibility reports with various options through MECON;
  • Selection of site and preparation of land schedule;
  • Preparation of land survey ,soil investigation and EIA and EMP report including reports for various statutory clearances including Forest Clearance.
  • Initiation of development of infrastructures like Railway, Power, Water- supply, Mining, Road etc.
  • Route survey for transport of raw material from linkage points, plant and machinery from Paradeep Port;
  • Finalisation of plant layout;
  • Finalisation of Basic Engineering for raw material handling system;
  • Finalisation of raw material linkage;
  • Floating enquiry for procurement of BOF, Billet Caster, Wire Rod Mill, Power Plant civil and structural package, LRF, Ladle and Torpedo, PCM, Sinter plant, Oxygen Plant etc.
  • Discussion with QUAD Engineering of CANADA for large size structural mill.

For proper utilisation and conservation of energy in the flue gas of the DR Plant, OSIL conceived and executed a 10 MW Waste Heat Power Plant with in-house engineering and execution resources.
OSIL executed the complete project based on actual field studies on reactor flue gas and site conditions, sizing all major equipment to optimum rating, designing the complete system with inputs from major equipment suppliers, procurement of plant and equipment from indigenous and foreign sources, integrating and interfacing them with the existing facilities. The plant was erected and commissioned by OSIL in July 2001 and it has been operating successfully by generating about 8 MW on average since then. Another AFBC Boiler of 30 T/hr steam capability has been added to produce 12.0 MW by utilizing the same TG.
During its association with NINL as Project Management leader, OSIL had established strong business relationship with several Chinese manufacturing & design engineering firms. After its withdrawal from NINL, OSIL together with CSGC/AERIMI of China & Otto India Ltd. Of India, a Thyssen-Krupp company, bid & successfully bagged in a global tendering, NINL’s Sinter Plant contract, which has been commissioned since March 2004. The discreet turnkey contract valued at 20 million Dollars (approx.) includes the following services:

  • Basic Engineering services of the entire 180 sq.m Sinter Plant for production of 1.7 million tons of BF Sinter.
  • Detail Engineering services for critical plant & equipment including support structures.
  • Supply of critical FOB & Indigenous equipment
  • Supervision of erection & commissioning
  • Performance Guarantee & Post Commissioning Services.
