The rapid restart underlines Tata Steel’s commitment to the site, the underlying strength of the existing assets and its importance to Tata Steel’s strategy.

Tata Steel has a stated strategy of growing its long-products capacity in India, in line with expected growth in demand driven by infrastructure build, government investment and spend on retail housing.

It has announced plans to invest in the NINL site to build a dedicated 4.5 million tons per annum state-of-the-art long products complex over the next few years. Given the close proximity to Tata Steel’s existing facility at Kalinganagar, it is able to realise significant synergies in terms of shared infrastructure, resources, and management.
