AP: RINL-VSP seeks help from all stakeholders to assist plant in resolving coal crisis

Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh), Apr 22 (UNI) In the backdrop of facing severe coal crisis due to the halt in operations at Adani Gangavaram Port Limited (AGPL), Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL), popularly known as Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) on Monday requested all citizens, stakeholders, contract workers, and people's representatives to come together and assist plant in resolving coal crisis.
RINL is currently facing an unprecedented challenge as operations at AGPL remain halted since April 12, 2024 morning due to the workers' agitation.
This interruption has severely impacted RINL's ability to access essential raw materials, including coking coal and limestone, which are indispensable for our production processes, RINL Chairman and Managing Director Atul Bhatt in a statement here.
The situation is dire, and the need for swift action has never been more urgent, he said “Without access to these critical resources, RINL's operations and, consequently, our ability to contribute to the nation's progress are at great risk”.
In this hour of need, “it is requested of all citizens, stakeholders, contract workers, and people's representatives to come together and assist RINL in resolving this crisis”, Bhatt said.
''Your timely intervention in this matter is paramount to ensuring the uninterrupted and safe operations of RINL, safeguarding jobs, and sustaining economic growth in our region”, the CMD said.
“We understand the challenges we face are significant, but we firmly believe that together, we can overcome them” said Bhatt, adding that “ Your cooperation in resolving this crisis will not only benefit RINL but will also contribute to the collective welfare of our community and Nation”.
“We request your immediate cooperation and support to enable RINL to evacuate its coking coal & lime stone from AGPL to RINL without any further delay”, he added.
