Landmark Structures Reinforced with JSW Neosteel
JSW has built a legacy in breaking new grounds with steel. This comes on the back of decades of expertise and dedication towards building a better tomorrow. Being sustainable and environment-friendly, steel is now being serviced to provide more and more dependable structures across different sectors from healthcare and sports to vital infrastructure including air, road and metro rail transport on which people can rely for their living and movement and getting ahead in life. Here's a look at the landmark structures reinforced by JSW Neosteel that stand tall bearing testimony to its excellence.
As a fast-expanding economy, India is changing the way it moves. With that in perspective, there is urgent need to build a robust airport infrastructure. To that end, JSW Neosteel has firmed up the construction of airport terminals in Delhi and Mumbai besides building the tallest ATC (airport traffic control) tower in the country and Silicon City Bengaluru's airport.
The Terminal 2 of Mumbai's international airport integrates world-class design, architecture, construction practices, and operational efficiency. Apart from the country’s first vertical passenger terminal, T2 is home to India’s largest public art programme in the form of a 3.2 km multi-storey Art Wall that has over 7000 pieces of artwork and artefacts from every corner of India.
The Indira Gandhi International Airport in India's national capital is spread over an area of about 5,106 acres. It is the busiest airport in the country in terms of passenger traffic with Terminal 3 itself handling about 70million passengers every year. Named after the former Prime Minister of India- “Indira Gandhi”, it is one of the busiest airports in India
Aviation is a branch of engineering that has the least tolerance for mistakes and increased importance on safety. Heralding the modernisation of airports and aircraft navigation services infrastructure in the country, the Mumbai ATC Tower is an example of engineering excellence and safety standards. Standing 84 meter above the ground and spread over 2,800 metres, the Mumbai ATC Tower is the tallest ATC tower in the country. It offers uninterrupted 360 degree view of the surroundings as far as five miles
Aggressive economic development is impossible without strong connectivity by roadways. Besides moving freight from one part of the country to another, it integrates various nooks and corners of the country and connects them to the economy. Following are two of the vital road infrastructure projects completed with JSW Neosteel.
Conceived by the Government of Uttar Pradesh to drive investment in Agra and reduce travel time between this city and India's capital Delhi, the Yamuna Expressway is paved in JSW Neosteel. It happens to be the longest access-controlled six-lane concrete pavement expressway extendable to eight lanes. In a first for military aviation in India, the Indian Air Force successfully landed a French Dassault Mirage-2000 on the Yamuna Expressway as part of trials to use national highways for an emergency landing, which bears testimony to its perfect finish.
Inaugurated in 2013, the Nashik Elevated Corridor is a 6.1 km long elevated passageway bypassing the thickly populated Nashik city. Lying on National Highway 3, it connects Mumbai to other states of India up in the north and east. It is the second-longest elevated corridor in Maharashtra and the third-longest in India.
Waterways are being taken up in all seriousness to uplift India's transport infrastructure. JSW Neosteel is also paving constructions of shipyards to facilitate civilian and military ship movement.
Kattupalli Shipyard Project
The Kattupalli Shipyard and Port Complex is a large shipyard project near Ennore in Tamil Nadu. Once commissioned, it will be the largest shipyard in Asia. The Kattupalli yard is mainly engaged for making warships and to augment the existing capacity in Gujarat for submarines. The facility's infrastructure is well suited to building large defence ships.
City Public Transport
To deal with the growing menace of air pollution and traffic congestion in metropolitan cities, JSW Neosteel is revitalising urban transport by building a fast, easy and smoke-free alternative in mobility. Following are some examples how.
There has been a marked rise in the popularity of metro as a prime mode of commute in tier-1 cities due to congestion and pollution. To that end, JSW Neosteel has firmed up construction of the first phase of the metro rail in Mumbai spanning 11.4 km. It has helped cut down the travel time to a third of what it was before the metro came. Work is also full steam ahead in the Chennai metro rail project which covers a total length of 45.1 km along two corridors.
The Mumbai Monorail was first opened to public in February 2014. On completion of all phases, it is poised to become the world’s second longest monorail system after the Osaka Monorail Main Line in Japan.
Silicon city Bengaluru has India's second largest metro system in terms of length and the number of stations. The Bengaluru metro is also the first metro transit system in the country that includes Wi-Fi on board. On an average, it ferries about 1.5 lakh passengers daily.
As the fifth largest economy of the world aiming for a 5 trillion-dollar GDP in the next few years, India's energy demands are set to rise. That is why, building a self-sufficient energy infrastructure will be key to India's development goals. Here's how JSW Neosteel is fuelling India's dreams to touch the sky.
Located in the state of Tamil Nadu, the Kalapakkam Atomic Power Station is India's first indigenously constructed nuclear power plant. It also hosts India’s first indigenous Pressurised light water reactor. This 80 MW reactor was developed by BARC as the land-based prototype of the Nuclear Power unit for India’s nuclear submarines.
The Kakinada Power Plant is a 220 MW environment friendly gas-based power plant. Located in the state of Andhra Pradesh, it happens to be India’s first and the world’s largest combined cycle power plant on a single barge.
The Chandrapur Super Thermal Power Plant is a coal-based power plant located in Chandrapur in Maharashtra. With a capacity of 3340 MW, it is the largest power plant in the state, accounting for about 25% of the total power requirement of the state. It has been in operation since 1984.
The Kakarapar Atomic Power Plant in Gujarat consists of two 220 MW pressurised water reactors with heavy water as moderator. The first unit of the plant started operations in 1993. Its robust safety mechanisms ensure prevention against dangerous accidents.
The Vallur Thermal Power Station Project in Chennai has three units with 500 MW capacity each. The first stage of the project was commissioned in 2012. Apart from its state Tamil Nadu, it also supplies power to the neighbouring states of Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Puducherry.
Set up in 1988, the Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited is a subsidiary of ONGC. The refinery has a versatile design with high flexibility to process crude oils of various densities and with high degree of automation.
Madras Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology
This multispecialty hospital in Chennai was established in 1999 on a 14-acre area. It has since then become the preferred medical care destination of many foreign nationals for specialised treatment.
JSW is passionately working with steel to unleash its potential in diverse spheres of contemporary living. With Neosteel, it is possible to shape the home of your dreams.
The power of steel is redefining the skyline of India's business capital Mumbai. The Lodha World Towers are signature residential towers epitomizing the highest international standards in luxury living and symbolizing the emergence of Mumbai as a key world city. Among other things, it establishes an iconic skyline presence in the maximum city characterized by unprecedented height. The tallest of the three World Towers is 117-storey high with 442 meters height that is set to be the second tallest residential tower in the world..
Cricket is the unofficial religion of India. Moreover, the field of sports in general is gaining prominence in the growth of children, rightly so. Recognising the potential of sports in changing so many lives positively, JSW Steel has shaped the construction of one of the most prominent stadiums in the country.
Ever since the first test cricket match was played on this ground in the 1974-75 season, Wankhede stadium in Mumbai has been the venue for a number of memorable moments in the history of Indian cricket. The iconic stadium can accommodate approximately 33,000 spectators and has stands named after eminent Indian cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar. One of the highlights of the stadium is the suspended cantilever roofs which give premium view of the field to the spectators.
All these structures are marvels of construction on their own terms and they are made with JSW Neosteel. And yet the best part is that these buildings remain memorable for reasons other than the material they were built from. And yet, the fact is that none of these would have been possible without the strength and durability of steel. They highlight the design flexibility as well as the endurance of a well-made steel building that can give wings to new accomplishments.
