Nalco implementing INR 4400 crore Phase II expansion program National Aluminum Company Limited is in the process of implementing a INR 4,402 crore Phase II expansion program which include raising its mining, and refining capacity and setting up of a 1200 MW cogeneration plant.

The company has started commissioning the various expanded capacities of its alumina refinery at Damanjodi including cogeneration power plant, evaporation plant, stacker and bauxite circuit for production of alumina. Other packages in the plant are under advanced stages of commissioning.

As part of its second phase expansion program, Nalco is enhancing its alumina refining capacity to 2.1 million tonnes from the existing 1.575 million tonnes. The company has placed equipment orders for upgrading alumina capacity to 2.275 million tonnes under its 4th stream upgradation program.

Nalco has already commissioned the fourth potline of its smelter plant and the ninth and tenth units of its captive power plant both located at Angul. The work at the Damanjodi refinery lagged after the Maoist attack in April 2009, when several contractors and their workers left the place. Some works were then offloaded to other contractors.
