The Big Push
The Big Push
THE L&T Metallurgical & Material Handling (L&TMMH) team at JSW’s Dolvi steel plant in Maharashtra has achieved yet another milestone. As part of the 3 MTPA Coke Oven Phase-II project towards the expansion of the plant, L&TMMH accomplished the first coke push in Battery-D on 26 February. 
The commissioning of the coke push was undertaken with remote assistance and with this, the coke generation capacity of Dolvi plant has now increased from 2.5 MTPA to 3.25 MTPA. This is a significant achievement, particularly considering that the task was accomplished just as the second wave of COVID-19 came crashing down. 
The ceremony for the first coke push was graced by Mr G S Rathore (President – Dolvi & Salav Projects,  JSW) along with Mr A K Verma (Sr VP - JSW), Mr Sunil Shinde (GM – Coke Oven, JSW), Mr Bhanu Pratap Singh (Project Director - L&T), Mr S Gokulan (Project Manager- COB, L&T) and other project team members. 
Mr Rathore congratulated the coke oven team on this milestone, appreciating their efforts in achieving it despite the constraints of the pandemic.  
As part of the expansion of JSW Dolvi Steel Plant from 5 MTPA to 10 MTPA, L&T is executing India’s biggest blast furnace (4.5 MTPA, with a volume of 5358 cubic metre), India’s biggest convertor (a 5-MTPA steel melt shop, with 350 MT/heat), the tallest stamp-charging coke-over batteries (3-MTPA coke oven) and three coke dry quenching units (two 190 TPH and one 140 TPH). 
Challenging in nature, all of these involve working inside an operating plant, with limited space availability. L&T had completed the Phase-I of the project earlier.
