Hyderabad: Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd (RINL) resumed production on Sunday after suspending operations for three weeks due to the devastation by Cyclone Hudhud.

“After the devastating cyclone on 12 October 2014, RINL swung into action for speedy revival. Production in all the units including Rolling Mills has been revived," the steel maker said in a statement.

Expressing satisfaction over the revival of production, RINL chairman and managing director (CMD) P. Madhusudan said the steel maker could revive operations in three weeks despite the breakdown of a major water supply line in a power plant, leading to tripping of captive power generation and delaying the process of recovery by three days.

He thanked trade unions, the steel executive association and other associations of RINL, the district administration, APTransco, Power Grid, the ministry of steel, state and central governments for the support extended in the revival process, it added.
