John Cockerill’s Indian entity has secured a contract from the Tinplate Company of India (TCIL), a subsidiary of Tata Steel, to install a Continuous Annealing Line (CAL) at the client’s Jamshedpur plant in Jharkhand. It adds to TCIL’s existing Cold Rolling Mills (CRMs), Electrolytic Tinning Lines (ETLs) and world-class Printing & Lacquering Lines.

A high-performance continuous annealing line to support the growth of the tinplate market

This investment is to support India’s leading tinplate producer in their goal to consistently offer high-quality products to meet its clients’ requirements in domestic and international markets, and will enable TCIL to enhance its share of value-added tinplate products and grow its overall market share.

The high degree of quality, reliability, flexibility, and safety for operators, guaranteed by the new CAL, will allow TCIL to adapt to the latest market demands, while positively contributing to sustainability and a reduced environmental footprint.

Proud to support India on its pathway to sustainable growth

John Cockerill India is to provide the design, engineering, manufacturing and supply of the plant and the equipment for the installation of the new CAL and is also in charge of the supervision of the erection of the line. Upon completion, the new line will produce 330,000 tons/y of high-quality annealed tinplate sheet per annum. The start of operations is scheduled early 2026.

John Cockerill is proud to have been chosen by such a first-class steelmaker to supply our latest innovative technologies for the processing of tinplate strip and to humbly contribute to India’s pathway towards sustainable growth.
