Bhubaneswar: In a bid to increase efficiency of its material handling, Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) has installed a Rapid Loading System at its Pelletisation Complex at Barbil in Odisha.

The system was inaugurated by General Manager, South Eastern Railway, S N Agrawal today in presence of DRM (Chakradharpur), Rajendra Prasad and President and Unit Head, JSPL Barbil, T S Shanbhogue.

The Rapid Loading System would improve material handling capacity of JSPL by accelerating rake loading speed.

"The Rapid Loading System of 48,000 MT per day will enhance JSPL's efficiency of handling raw material and product dispatch. The increased efficiency will also help in saving cost and time, thus boosting overall competence of JSPL," said T S Shanbhogue, President and Unit Head, JSPL Barbil.

With this new Rapid Loading System, time for rake loading would be reduced by one third. Instead of three hours, one rake can be loaded in just one hour. The system was more environment friendly and would help in managing overloading.
