Committed to sustaining and further enhancing
its already prominent standing in the aluminium
industry, Hindalco continues to be involved
in multiple projects to expand its current
facilities and establish new ones.
Corporate Projects and
Procurement Cell, Mumbai
The Corporate Projects and Procurement Cell
is the central and nodal cell for the evaluation,
monitoring, control and implementation of
all brownfield expansion projects and for
procurement of major raw materials for all
units of Hindalco.
Hirakud smelter production was ramped up in
phases from 30 ktpa to 155 ktpa and power
plant was ramped up from 60 MW to 367.5 MW
from 2002 to 2009.
Expansion of smelter from 155 ktpa to 213
ktpa and power plant expansion from 367.5
MW to 467 MW
will be commissioned in FY 2012.
Project is underway for transfer of all key
equipments for flat rolled products, from
Novelis plant at Rogerstone, United Kingdom
to Hirakud. This will enable Hindalco to produce
Can body stock for the local and export market.
Business head: Mr. R.S. Dhulkhed
Alumina capacity: Belgaum
Conversion from standard alumina to special
alumina is being taken up. On completion this
project will catapult Hindalco to the position
of the second-highest producer of specials
in the world.
The specials alumina production from Belgaum
will be ramped up to 316 ktpa from 138 ktpa.
A cogen power plant (steam and power production),
railway facility etc. are also being taken
up as a part of the project to substantially
reduce the production costs.
Business head: Mr. Sanjay Sehgal
The expansion of the Muri alumina refinery
from 110 ktpa to 450 ktpa, and the cogen plant
expansion from 9 MW to 30 MW was completed
in 2008 and stabilisation and production ramp
up is in progress.
The expansion at Muri has resulted in alumina
production going up by over 100 per cent at
