Mumbai: Zenith Birla (India) Ltd., part of the Yash Birla Group (YBG) and a producer of ERW steel pipes, tubes and structurals, plans to set up a manufacturing unit for large diameter spiral SAW (Sub­merged Arc Welded) pipes. The company will import mo­bile spiral mill from Australia capable of producing pipes of 18 inches to 100 inches.

"Once commissioned, it will be the first mobile spiral mill that can move from one loca­tion to another location and manufacture pipes at site, thus, reducing transportation cost and wastage of materials," the company spokesperson said.

"The move will enable Zenith Birla to be­come the leading enterprise that can manufacture products from half-an-inch to 100 inch­es of steel pipes in the country. It also has a facility for in­ternal cement mortar lining that can coat the inner lining of the pipes at the site itself, which is required in such man­ufactured spiral pipes," he added

"The project will help us to enter into a diversified field of pipe manufacturing from ERW (Electric Resistance Welded) small diameter pipes to large diameter pipes includ­ing large diameter spiral SAW pipes and will be able to cater from 1/2 inch to 100 inches pipes," he said.

Currently, the production capability is 210,000 tonnes per annum of up to 8 inches steel pipes at its facility in Kho-poli, near Mumbai. Post ex­pansion, it will have the potential to deliver 360,000 tonnes per annum of up to 14 inches steel pipes.

ncorporated in 1960, this Yash Birla Group flagship company commenced operations in 1962. The company has a total capacity of 210,000 MTPA. The company’s three manufacturing units – at Khapoli, Tarapur and Murbad, in Maharashtra are located in close proximity to the key raw material and key consumption centres. The company has all the major product certifications like IS, ASTM, API,DIN,BS, EN and JIS. The company has over 500 point of sales in India and also exports to more than 50 countries.
