Investment Rationale

Efficient tie-up with Japanese firm Sumitomo.
Acquisition of Bowen Energy

Capacity expansion

Bhushan Steel has Rs.20,000 crore as expansion plans through Bengal Steel project. It’s a Greenfield steel plant and it will be put up in a new company. Sumitomo is very keen to have a stake in the new steel company. The project is still at a nascent stage and the land acquisition will take some time. Once that is done the project will not be commissioned earlier than 2014-15. The steel project in Bengal is definitely a large investment and the company is looking for a JV with Sumitomo.


With the acquisition of bowen energy, Strong Relationship with Sumitomo and a plan to setup steel project in bengal are the key drivers for the growth in coming future also the capacity expansion at it's orissa planet to 5 million ton by oct 2012 will add value.
