Mumbai: Vedanta Resources said on 15 January it will ramp up Sesa Goa’s iron ore production capacity to 20-25 million tonnes a year from the current capacity of 12.2 million tonnes.
Vedanta had recently acquired a majority stake in Sesa Goa.
The ramping up of the production will be done over a period of three years, a senior company official said at a function here.
The company also intends to ramp up the pig iron production capacity to 1-million tonnes from the present 2,92,000 tonnes per annum.
Metallurgical coke production of Sesa Goa will also be increased to 7,50,000 tonnes per annum from the present 3,22,000 tonnes.
The production increases will be achieved through de-bottlenecking, the official said adding the capex in all over the next three years for this purpose will be Rs3,000 crore ($763 million).
