Captive Power Plant
The activity involves generation of electricity out of the flue gases produced from Blast Furnaces. Part of the flue gases from Blast Furnace is used to heat the blast air in the Metallic Blast Preheater and balance quantity is used to generate electricity by recovering the enthalpy of Blast Furnace gases in a Boiler specifically designed. The Generated electricity is used for captive consumption and is synchronized with a Karnataka state power transmission Ltd. grid. The grid serves to absorb any voltage fluctuations and safe guard against power trips. The captive power plant ensures regular power supply of 8 MW. KSL have plans to add 30-40 M wt power generation capacities to achieve self sufficiency in power requirements.
All the above integrated operations makes KSL a self reliant special steel manufacture
