Operating above rated capacity in saleable steel for the 15th year in succession, Bhilai also recorded its best ever saleable steel production of 4.427m tonne, SAIL said in a release.
The plant recorded its best-ever finished steel production of 3.60m tonne.
Breaking all its previous records in production of finished rails and plates, merchant products and wire rods production, Bhilai also reported a sharp increase in the production of value-added special steel products and developed new product grades.
The Bhilai plant developed 12 new product grades, backed by its own research & development and modifications in the finishing mils.
During the year, it reported a special steel production of 2.17m tonne, which accounted for 48.8% of total saleable steel production as compared with 36.6% in 2006-07.
This growth in special steel production also contributed in a big way to its bottomline.
Bhilai said it adopted several strategies and new initiatives during the year to improve its performance and get a bigger share of the Indian steel market.
