Hindalco Industries has tied up funds for its Aditya Aluminium smelter project at Lapanga in Odisha.
The company has tied up Rs 9,896 crore debt through a consortium of 28 banks and financial institutions. The 13,195-crore project is being funded in a debt-equity ratio of 75:25. The company will set up a 3.59 lakh tpa aluminium smelter along with a 900-MW captive power plant at Lapanga. The equity part for the project has already been financed by internal accruals and QIP (qualified institutional placement) issuance of $600 million (approx Rs 3,300 crore) made in November 2009.
Also, the company is setting up an alumina refinery with integrated bauxite mines at Koraput in Orissa, which is expected to be completed by 2014.
