Tuwairqi Steel Mills Limited (TSML) has started delivery of Direct Reduction of Iron (DRI) to Pakistan. The first consignment was delivered to Shalimar Steel Mills Lahore through Shajarpak Pvt Ltd, its authorised Sales and Marketing agent for Pakistan.
The DRI pellets were packed in poly propylene jumbo bags for safe transportation. Zaigham Adil Rizvi, Director (Projects), TSML while expressing his gratitude, congratulated the production and logistic teams on sending off the first consignment within 15 days of the commercial inauguration of the DRI Plant.
He was of the view that although TSML had secured various orders for DRI pellets from neighbouring countries, domestic exports would be its priority in order to facilitate high quality steel manufacturing in the country. “Pakistan is among the countries that rely mostly on imports when it comes to heavy mechanical structures and engineering goods,” he concluded.-PR
