A second batch of 16 engineers of SAIL’s IISCO Steel Plant at Burnpur in West Bengal is headed for training at Danieli in Italy this month, according to a release.
Danieli is the equipment and technology supplier for the mill.
The exercise is part of preparatory works before commissioning of the wire rod and bar mill some time next year.
SAIL’s expansion and modernisation project at ISP has seen inordinate time overrun. A firm timeline has not yet been fixed for operationalising the various components of the plant.
A total of 48 engineers from operations, maintenance and automation sections of the new mill will undergo the training.
The first batch has already undergone the programme and the last batch is slated for next month.
