Steel Plant at Bokaro

Modernisation of Sinter Machine  №1

Sinter Plant at Bokaro Steel Plant is made-up of 3 sintering machines with 312m2 working area each supplied by JSC "VO “Tyazhpromexport”  and commissioned in   1972, 1977 and 1982. Sintering machines designed and supplied to India by Uralmash Steel Plant, Yekaterinburg, Russia.
