VISAKHAPATNAM: Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) on Sunday said production has been restored at all units of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP), which was affected by Cyclone Hudhud.

In a release, RINL said the revival of raw material handling facilities, coke ovens, blast furnaces and SMS-1 was completed by October 22 after one of the power lines was restored. The second line for supply of additional 50 MW power was energised on October 27 with the help of APTransco and PowerGrid, enabling RINL to revive the wire rod mill-1 on October 31, and the steel melt shop (SMS-2) and MMSM on November 1. The rolling in LMMM, where furnace heating started on October 30, began working on Sunday, the release added.
