Coimbatore: The Covai Mani Group is setting up a Rs. 120-crore state-of-the-art steel plant at Musiri, Trichy district. Besides, it is establishing a sponge iron plant at an outlay of Rs. 195 crore at Madukkarai, near here.

According to M. Raja, its Director, the Rs. 3,500 crore group already has four companies—Raja Steels Pvt Ltd, Raja Sponge Iron and Energy Pvt Ltd, MMS Steels Pvt Ltd and Kanyaka Fine Weld Ltd. The product from these companies are marketed under the brand name ‘Covai Raja’.

The plant coming up on a 50-acre site at Musiri will have most modern infrastructure and a fully automatic end-to-end processing and manufacturing facility. It would have the capacity to produce 1.1 lakh tonnes of billets and one lakh tonnes of TMT reinforcement bars, channels, joists, angles and rounds.

The TMT production unit would be set up with German collaboration and would use imported raw material along with locally sourced scrap and sponge iron.

“We started the work in 2007 and it is likely to be commissioned by April 2010,” said Mr. Raja. It would be a three-shift unit that would provide jobs for at least 700 persons.

The sponge iron plant at Madukkarai, coming up in 40 acres, would have a production capacity of 1.1 lakh tonnes annually.

In addition, a power generation unit capable of generating 120 million units (which includes six windmills with a capacity of generating 16 MW) will be set up there.

While 30 per cent of the power generated would be utilised by the group companies, the rest would be sold to the new Musiri unit.

The Madukkarai plant would generate employment for 800 persons. The construction work is full swing in this unit also and it is expected to go on stream by December 2011.

Fights and waiting over, dream come true

Fights and waiting over, dream come true

Fights and waiting over, dream come true

I am a poor widow living in Vadugaputty (ward No. 14) hamlet of Musiri Town Panchayat with my son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. In the past, we’ve had bitter experiences collecting our drinking water and defecating in the open (because we didn’t have a toilet).
We used to collect was from the public tap but it was not dependable. I used to leave our empty pots in front of the public tap two days before the water was going to be released for collection by the city. If the water was scheduled to come in the morning, I would go the previous night and sleep there so I could wake and get the water. Even then it was difficult to get five pots of water and sometimes it ended in quarreling with the other women.
One day there was a big fight and I got injured, leaving scars on my body. Many days I could not sleep well due to this difficulty in collecting water. It is becaue we do not have an individual water pipe connection that we have to go under all these ordeals.
At this juncture, Water.org and SCOPE came to our village and told us about the individual water pipe connection and Ecosan toilet program. Immediately, I applied for both. Now we have an individual water pipe connection and toilet in our house! We are using it and our relatives are also coming to house to use it. We feel so very happy.
Whenever I see the scars on my body, I remember the problem I faced in collecting water from the public tap. If the individual water pipe connection had come to our village earlier I would not have this scar on my body. I would have never dreamt that we could get these two facilities on our own, so we are thankful for Water.org and SCOPE. – Mrs. Thangammal
