The Indian steel producer Kalika Steel Alloys Pvt. Ltd. (Kalika Steel) has placed an order with Siemens Metals Technologies to supply a rolling mill for reinforcing steels. The mill will be erected in the Jalna plant in the state of Maharashtra and produce about 250,000 metric tons of rebar per year from low-carbon steels. Siemens has specifically developed this plant design for small to medium-size production capacities and it allows projects to be implemented comparatively quickly and economically. Commissioning of the rolling mill is scheduled for late 2014.
