Similarly the BF coke produced by NINL is of high quality and is being supplied to almost all units of Steel Authority of India Ltd. and Vishakhapatanam Steel Plant. The "KAMDHENU" fertilizer (Ammonium Sulphate) produced is in high demand in nearby areas. Crude tar is being despatched to down stream industries for further processing. BF Slag is being supplied to cement plants for further processing to manufacture cement.
NINL is having 62.5 MW captive power plant to meet the power requirements. Apart from meeting own requirement NINL is presently exporting substantial quantity of power to GRIDCO, Orissa. The steel making facilities under Phase-II expansion are Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) alongwith a six strand Billet Caster, Oxygen Plant, Lime & Dolomite plant and auxiliary unit. Presently, almost all equipment erection with respect to BOF & Continuous Casting Plant (CCP) are completed and Lime & Dolomite plant is under commissioning. NINL has been allotted Iron Ore Mine at Koira in the districts of Sundergarh and Koenjhar having capacity of 110 million tonnes reserves. Forest clearance of these iron ore mines is still awaited and are expected to be operational by March’2013.
Over the years MMTC has become the acknowledged market leaders in facilitating export of Indian Iron Ore. Today, MMTC is India’s one of the largest exporters of minerals and ores, handling large quantity of iron ore through various ports like Vizag, Paradeep, Goa, etc across the country.

It will be our endeavour to work in tandem with consumer industries to provide them with a market savvy, innovative and flexible product mix and be in virtual control of the entire value addition chain.
RAW MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM (RMHS)
Designed to handle 2.50 million tons/year of various raw materials such as Iron Ore, Dolomite, Limestone, Quartzite, Manganese Ore, Coke etc., Major material handling Equipment are Wagon Tippler and side Arm Charger, Stacker-cum-Reclaimer, Twin Boom Stacker, Blender Reclaimer, Transfer Car, Belt conveyors of various widths and lengths. The entire operation is automated and operated from a Central Control Room to provide consistent quality of raw materials to Blast furnace and Sinter Plant. The raw materials will be brought by rail transport to the wagon tippling yard.
Stacker cum Reclaimer in RMHS yard :BLAST FURNACE COMPLEX
Blast Furnace to produce 1.1 million tons of Hot Metal/year is in operation. The Furnace has useful volume of 1,915 cubic meters with Hot Blast Stoves for supplying pre-heated blast with 1,100 C hot blast temperature. Improved distribution techniques for raw material charging using the Paul Wurth bell less top have increased productivity and lowered fuel rate. Improved stave cooling and design features of Blast Furnace will contribute to longer campaign life.
