Rain Industries has received an approval for setting-up of Vertical Shaft Kiln Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) Plant to produce 370,000 tons per annum (TPA) in Andhra Pradesh Special Economic Zone (APSEZ), Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh by Rain CII Carbon (Vizag), a step down wholly owned subsidiary company (RCCVL) to meet the increasing demand for CPC from Smelters in India and the regions around. The board of directors at its meeting held on August 11, 2017 has approved for the same.

The project will also include a Co-generation Power Plant of 15 MW to efficiently use the flue-gases from the Vertical Shaft Kiln CPC Plant.

The estimated project cost is Rs 424 crore ($65 million). RCCVL is estimated to commence operations during First Quarter of 2019.
