EMPLOYMENT-The Kerala Picture

Technologically, the RSP is of the fifties vintage. There have been numerous incremental and quite a few radical changes in ferrous metallurgical technology during the last thirty years which need to be selectively adopted. In India a not-too- inconsequential ferrous metallurgical machinery manufacturing sector has been created, though it is technologically dependent. The Indian ferrous metallurgical machinery manufacturing sector is dominated by firms with West German collaborations. For coke ovens plant, there is Otto (India), an affiliate of Dr C Otto and Comp. For sintering plant, the Heavy Engineering Corporation is in collaboration with Lurgi Chemie. For blast furnace plant, there is Larsen and Toubro whose foreign collaborator is MAN-GHH. For ladle metallurgy, there are L and T whose foreign collaborator is Vac Metal and Concast (India) whose foreign collaborator is MAN-GHH. For continuous casting plant, there are ISPL whose foreign collaborator is Mannesmann Demag and HEC whose foreign collaborator is SMS Schloemann Siemag. For rolling mills there is MECON whose collaborator is SMS Schloemann Siemag.
