JSW Steel is reportedly seeking environment clearance for its mega steel plant cum captive power plant (CPP) proposed near Paradip in Odisha. In this regards, the company has applied for green nod for the crude steel plant of 13.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) and 900 Mw CPP to be set up within the integrated steel plant complex.
JSW Steel had originally proposed to set up a 10 mtpa capacity shore-based steel plant in Odisha. It had asked for 4500 acres of land for the steel mill. Later, the company has submitted a revised project plan, intending to go for a higher capacity steel project.
JSW Steel is one of the largest steel manufacturing companies in India having units in Karnataka and Maharashtra producing crude steel, long steel and flat steel products.
