Bharat Aluminium Co Ltd (BALCO) was incorporated in 1965 as a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU). Since then, the company has been closely associated with the Indian aluminium industry, in a pivotal role. BALCO has a partially integrated operation with its own captive bauxite mines, refinery and smelters, producing primary aluminum and also has 810 megawatt (MW) captive power plants.
Major operations of BALCO are in the town of Korba (Chhattisgarh), whereas its mines supplying high grade bauxite are situated at Kawardha and Mainpat. BALCO is proposing to install a 325,000 tonnes per year (TPY) aluminium smelter within the existing premises of Korba Aluminium Complex. Required electric power for the proposed smelter will be taken from new captive power plant to be installed. Finishing lines are capable of producing high quality ingots, wire rods, billets, busbars and rolled products.
