Upgradation of capacity

With this expansion, the alumina production capacity of the refinery has been upgraded from 1.5 mtpa to 2 mtpa.

L&T MMH has executed this project in a time-bound manner ensuring the most critical process units of the refinery are ready.

The company overcame many difficulties at the remote location of the project including limited material availability, inadequate local skilled workmen, hilly terrain, and heavy rainfall with a prolonged rainy season.

Moreover, the challenging work was completed during the outbreak of Covid pandemic, with 2,000 workmen working at the site with precautions and safety measures.

L&T ensured utmost care for the workmen by providing not only basic amenities but also requisite medical facilities and timely payment of wages to maintain high morale of the workmen and to protect them from infections during this period.
