SAIL - Tata Steel JV started scouting for acquisition of overseas coal assets

After acquiring a large coal property in Mozambique less than a fort-night ago, the State-run Indian steel major Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) has once again geared up its activities for fresh acquisitions of overseas coking coal assets. Now it is through SAIL-Tata Steel Ltd JV (joint venture) called S&T Mining, whose main purpose would be scouting and acquisition of overseas coal assets to ensure continuous supply of coking coal, a key raw material in steel production. 
S&T Mining, a joint venture between Tata Steel and SAIL, has already invited applications for prime coking coal assets with a minimum reserve of 100 million tones giving last date to submit applications is September 10. It is open to the option of stake purchase, long-term off take or any other arrangement to secure long-term supply of coking coal. Actually the JV, S&T Mining was formed in 2008 with an aim to secure, develop, and operate coal mines for its promoters, remained largely dormant all these years. "We will be getting increasingly active over the next few months at S&T Mining and will hopefully be in a position to take up new projects," Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) Chairman CS Verma said recently in a TV Channel. With international coal prices at a rock bottom, analysts feel it is the right time to pick up coking coal assets, especially for the likes of Tata Steel and SAIL, to meet their ambitious steelmaking capacity enhancement plans. SAIL is raising its capacity to 23 mt by 2015 and Tata Steel is set to commission 3 MT capacity plant at its upcoming unit in Odisha's Kalinganagar by March 2015.  
S&T Mining said it would certainly prefer mines in Australia. The company is seeking hard coking coal mines that will have an output of more than 2 MT of saleable coal per annum and a minimum asset life of 25 years. In particular, S&T Mining said it is interested in mines that are close to commissioning or one to two years from getting operative. SAIL and Tata Steel have captive coal mines, but both depend on largely imports of coking coal to meet their current requirement. SAIL relies on imports for 90 per cent of its coal needs, while Tata Steel imports 50 per cent of the coal it consumes. At present almost 80 percent of coking coal used by Indian steel industry is imported from Australia.

Blast Furnace number 4 at Tata Steel in Port Talbot starts working

Blast Furnace No. 4 at Tata Steel in Port Talbot starts working as First Minister Carwyn Jones has formally marked the start of works which is part of a £240 million investment in the steel works by Tata. Out of this, £185 million is being used to rebuild the Blast Furnace and £55 million to install a gas cooling system.

The rebuilt blast furnace will raise company’s steelmaking capacity by up to 500 thousand tonnes and contribute to Tata’s commitment to achieve an annual capacity at Port Talbot of 5 million tonnes of liquid steel. The rebuild of blast furnace will also incorporate technology to improve environmental performance. A spokesman for Tata Steel said that "We work extremely closely with competent authorities such as the Environment Agency on all major projects to make sure that not only do we comply with legislation but we help to minimize the impact of our operations on the local community."
Secretary of State for Wales Ms Cheryl Gillan said that "Tatat is clearly operating in an extremely challenging market, both domestically and internationally, but I am re assured that Tata is fully committed to its investment in the UK. The company is one of our biggest employers in Wales and I look forward to seeing the new furnace taking shape over the coming months."

Tata Steel Construction Products (TSCP), Llanwern: 70 people lose their jobs as the unit will be closed


Tata Steel is the flagship company of Tata Sons one of the best-known symbols of India’s industrial development. Tata Steel, formerly Tata Iron & Steel Company (TISCO), located at Jamshedpur is the oldest integrated steel plants in India having started its production in February 1912. Tata Steel, the world's 7th largest steelmaker, is now a multinational one having operations in many countries. The company said on Friday November 4, 2011, that it decided "with great regret" to close the Tata Steel Construction Products (TCSP) business due to weak activity in UK construction and public procurement.
The products of the Tata Steel Construction Products (TCSP) business, based at the Llanwern site in Newport, include highways barrier systems for roads, parapets, floor-decking systems and lightweight frames for a variety of applications, etc.
Paul Steele, Tata Steel's managing director for distribution UK and Ireland, said: "It is with great regret that, following a detailed review of the Tata Steel Construction Products (TCSP) business, we have proposed to cease operations at construction products.” He said the business has operated at a consistent loss since 2008 and was unable to overcome the continuing economic downturn.
As a result of this closure of the construction products unit at Llanwern all the 70 people currently employed there are expected to lose their jobs. "Clearly this is a very difficult time for the people who work for the business and I would like to pay tribute to everyone who has tried so hard to enable this business, which has operated at a consistent loss since 2008, to overcome the continuing economic downturn" Mr. Steele said.
