This landmark achievement also propels JSPL into the elite club of 7 global steel majors with the capability to manufacture 'Head Hardened Rails' in the world.
Ravi Uppal, MD & Group CEO, during the event said, “The govt’s renewed impetus on railway infrastructure development and the proposed introduction of high speed and bullet trains necessitates the establishment of domestic facility to fulfill the need of Indian Railways.”
“We envisage our indigenously produced rail product line which includes India’s longest rails and head hardened rails to be the preferred choice for the upcoming metro and hi-speed rail corridors in India,” he added.
Rail head hardening is a cost-effective and efficient method for extending the service life of rails by improving mechanical properties.
The head hardened rails are different from normal rails. Head Hardened Rail can withstand increased wear from train travelling at high speed (>250 km/Hr) and greater frequency with heavy axial load.
