Jindal Shadeed, located strategically in the ancient port city of Sohar, is set over a 120-Hectare prime property, just 60-metres from the shoreline and adjacent to the busy Muscat-Dubai highway.
Jindal Shadeed has an impressive line-up of facilities, geared to handle Oman’s growing need for Steel.
Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) Plant
Our facilities include one Direct Reduction Plant supplied by Midrex Technologies USA, with a capacity of 1.5 MTPA of HBI (0.4 MTPA) and HDRI (1.1 MTPA). DR Plant has four briquetting machines for the production of hot briquetted iron (HBI) and is facilitated with the unique gravity feeding technology for transferring HDRI directly to Electric Arc Furnace of Steel melt shop. DR Plant mainly consists of Vertical shaft furnace, Reformer, Heat Recovery Unit, Seal gas system and Natural gas pre-treatment system. The spent gas which comes out of furnace and the flue gas from the Reformer are effectively re-used within the process and there is no wastage of gas from the process. It is very environmental friendly process and the emissions are well within the limits.
Steel Melt Shop:
The plant consists of state-of-the-Art steel making facilities with the best features in terms of product range and productivity. The technological solution is characterized by the choice of high quality and productivity facilities by which it is possible to achieve extremely efficient operating results with low manpower and specific energy consumption, thereby making the plant highly competitive.
SMS comprises of
- 200t Electric Arc Furnace (EAF).
- 200t Ladle Refining Furnace (LF).
- 200 Ton Vacuum Degassing Unit (VD).
- Matching 8 strand Combi. Continuous Casting Machine to produce Square and round Billets/Blooms. The caster is first of its kind in the world.
The latest addition to Jindal Shadeed’s array of innovative facilities is a prestigious 1.4 million tonne per annum Rolling Mill with advanced technology and equipment set up in collaboration with Danieli, Italy. The mill is capable of producing Rebars as per all International standards.
Rolling Mill includes
- Reheating Furnace.
- High Pressure Descaler.
- H-V combination Rolling Mill.
- Heat treatment equipment with QTB(Quenched & Tempered Bar) Technology
The state-of-the-art mill with utmost mechanization & automation which boasts the largest rolling capacity in Oman, has begun production of its latest brand of Rebars called Jindal Panther Rebars of consistently high quality.
The mill can produce rebars in diameter ranging from 8mm to 40mm meeting all the required international standards and grades.
The production of Jindal Panther Rebars involves a combination of plastic deformation of steel in its austenitic stage followed by quenching and further tempering.
Technically equipped pulpits or control rooms allow stringent process controls at each critical operation, ensuring uniform properties & dimensions in each rebar.
Rebars have a soft ferrite and pearlite fine grained core and a strong and tough tempered martensite layer making it ideal for high rises, dams, bridges, individual houses and critical structures where high yield strength is required, without compromising on the elongation properties.
The state of the art processes used to manufacture Jindal Panther Rebars coupled with most modern Steel Making and Refining Processes; result in a clean and homogeneous steel quality.
Jindal Panther Rebars are manufactured using Quenched and Tempered Bar (QTB) and Self Tempering Technology, which results in high strength and ductility due to fine grain multi phased composite structures.
They also meet Ultimate Tensile Strength to Yield Strength (UTS/YS) ratio and high percentage elongation, producing a superior earthquake resistant quality due to high energy absorption capability.
Jindal Shadeed is committed to provide complete customer satisfaction with respect to quality, delivery and services
- It has a 600 m long captive jetty adjacent to the plant with 2 un-loaders and 1 no Mobile Harbour Crane to handle Import & Export activities. It can accommodate large capsize vessels up to 180,000 DWT with a draft of 19 metres.
- It has most modern Material Handling System and utility equipment.
