Essar Steel, proud supplier to the ‘Bogibeel Bridge’, India’s longest rail-cum-road bridge

December 31,2018


Essar Steel is amongst the largest supplier of customised high grade heavy plates for the Bogibeel Bridge, which was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi on 25th December 2018. The Bogibeel bridge connects Eastern India, thereby delivering faster turnaround and more opportunities for the development of the region. It is a matter of immense pride for Essar Steel to be a partner in completing the project. The Company has made some pioneering contributions by developing specialised steel for the bridge. The steel was tailor-made for durability and strength while keeping in mind the fact that the bridge is in a seismic prone zone. It has supplied approximately one third of the quantity of steel plates required for the project.

“Being part of such a landmark effort to build the longest rail-cum-road bridge for the nation is a matter of immense pride for us. Essar Steel is known for its quality and customised features, and hence is part of many megastructures the country boasts of today. It was extremely rewarding for us to contribute in nation building through our Make In India products, and we hope to continue delivering high-quality value-added steel to our customers”, said Mr Vikram Amin, Executive Director – Sales and Marketing, Essar Steel.

Essar Steel, through its state-of-the-art research facilities, has a track record of being a pioneer in developing many specialised steels of great quality, exactly the way its customers want it!
