NALCO has received the approval from Odisha’s High Level Clearance Authority for setting up a smelter unit in the state.

The company will set up a 0.5 million tpa aluminium smelter and 1,260 MW captive power plant at Kepse in Sundergarh district. The facility will come up with an investment of Rs 16,345.89 crore over 2,500 acre. The smelter project needs 50 cusecs of water which will be drawn from the Hirakud reservoir. The company is in process of applying for a coal block to Coal ministry for the smelter project.
