BSP bags Lankan rail orders

Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP), the flagship entity of the Steel Authority of India (SAIL), has bagged a fresh order of exporting rails to Sri Lanka. The order of about 14,000 tonne is for the UIC-60 grade of rails.

Rails in 45E1 section and R260 grade that are being exported to Sri Lanka, have been made as per Euronorm specification EN 13674-4. Special roll pass designing was done for rolling of 45 kg/m rail section, which is much smaller than the normal 52 kg/m or 60 kg/m sections being regularly rolled for Indian Railways.

During testing, rails pertaining to these orders were checked for depth of decarburisation along the rail head through superficial hardness testing, as stipulated in the Euronorm specification.
