PTI reported that Steel Authority of India Limited is planning to commence manufacturing of special quality rails for high speed train corridors and metro projects in the next two years. SAIL Bhilai Steel Plant CEO Mr Anirban Dasgupta told PT I“We expect to commence head hardened rail project in two years. However, it is now in the planning stage. The capacity and investments have not been firmed up. Feasibility studies will be carried out at BSP and Burnpur plant as only one facility will not be enough for SAIL, given the projected demand. The project would help for substituting imports.”

He said the steel maker is in the process of hiring a consultant to carry out the feasibility studies.

With more strength than the normal rails, the speciality product is used in metro rail projects and high speed train corridors.
