Taloja Copper Project

Taloja Copper project (TCP) at Taloja, Maharashtra


Origin

The Taloja Copper Project was set up in December 1989, based on technology sourced from Southwire, USA.


Existing Production Capacity

The plant produces Continuous Cast Copper Rods (CCR) and has a capacity of producing 60,000 TPA. The inputs, i.e. cathodes are sourced from the Company’s own unit at Khetri and Ghatsila (i.e. KCC and ICC) as well as through direct purchase of cathodes. The unit also undertakes tolling of cathodes.

The Project has an installed capacity to produce 60,000 MT per year of Continuous Cast Copper Wire Rods of 8mm, 11mm, 12.5mm and 16mm diameters. The product is offered for sale in the form of coils, each coil weighing 3.5 MT, 2.5 MT and 1.00 MT.


Technology Involved

The technology used is the SC 2000 system of the world-renowned Southwire Co., USA. The Southwire Continuous Rod System (SCR) is accepted as the world’s leading technology for producing premium quality continuous cast rods. Rods produced by this technology meet the most exacting standards conforming to ASTM B 49/98 &/or IS 12444/1988.


Existing Infrastructure

  • Established in 1990
  • Plant to produce 60,000 TPA of continuous cast wire rod.
