India, February 24, 2020: Tata Steel is proud to be associated with the world’s largest cricket stadium, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium in Motera, which has been chosen as the venue for ‘Namaste Trump’ event to welcome US President Donald J. Trump. Tata Tiscon rebars constitute 11,000 tons of steel rebars that make 75% of the total rebar (15,000 tons) requirement for the project.
One of the unique features of this project is that out of 11,000 tons of rebars provided, 8,400 tons of steel was supplied in the cut and bend form (Tiscon Readybuild) besides supply of 41,000 pieces of couplers and 84,000 threads.
Tiscon Readybuild is a construction solution wherein an off-site rebar processing is done at specialised Readybuild service center enabling supplies of rebars in customised shapes and sizes, thus reducing steel wastage at site and expediting delivery of projects.
Motera cricket stadium, located in Ahmedabad district of Gujarat, has the seating capacity of 1.1 lakh. Tata Steel has been associated with many marquee projects of national importance and has supplied its construction solutions to monuments like Statue of Unity in Gujarat, Bogibeel Bridge in Assam (longest rail-cum-road bridge), new Ganga bridge under construction in Patna (longest river bridge), Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai, Metro Projects in Kolkata and Mumbai, Signature Bridge in Delhi, Samruddhi Mahamarg connecting Mumbai and Nagpur etc.
