SAIL postpones commercial production of HH rails

The state-owned Steel Authority of India (SAIL) has postponed its plans to begin commercial production of head hardened (HH) rails at its Bhilai Steel Plant in Chhattisgarh, as the foreign experts involved in the trials left India in the wake of the second COVID wave.

The development will affect the company's plans to begin commercial HH rail production. Earlier SAIL was looking to start commercial production of main HH tracks in FY21 fiscal.

HH tracks are special tracks used in high-speed cargo lanes and subway tracks. Such rails are manufactured using the head hardening technology to carry about 50 percent higher pressure compared to normal rails.

SAIL has set up facilities for production of HH tracks at the new Universal Rail Mill (URM) at its Bhilai steel plant (BSP) in Chhattisgarh.

SAIL will be the second player in India to start the production of HH rails.

Jindal Steel (JSPL) produces HH rails at its plant located in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh.

SAIL is committed to fulfil all the requirements of the Indian Railways. In this context, SAIL had commissioned URM for long panel welded rails with additional facility for producing HH rails.

Meanwhile, the Railways has asked for supply of R260 grade rails in 60E1 profile. Production of these rails is being done in the dedicated mills at Bhilai plant since April 2021.
