JSW Steel USA to Invest $110 Million in Texas for Renewable Energy Expansion


JSWJSW Steel USA, a subsidiary of India’s JSW Group, announced its plan to invest $110 million in steel projects in Texas. This strategic investment aims to facilitate the production of high-quality monopile steel plates, crucial for supporting the Biden administration’s ambitious goal of deploying 30 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind energy by 2030, sufficient to power 10 million homes with clean energy.

JSW Steel USA, part of the $24 billion JSW Group, employs over 800 individuals and is gearing up to enhance its capabilities in specialty steel production under the ‘Made in America’ banner.

Parth Jindal, Director of JSW Steel USA, expressed confidence in the investment’s potential to bolster their market position and reduce US import dependence in infrastructure and renewable energy sectors. He emphasized, “These investments will progressively deliver high-quality steel products and expand our footprint in niche markets”.

The expansion aligns with JSW USA’s recent $145 million investment in its Mingo Junction facility in Ohio, demonstrating its commitment to strengthening domestic manufacturing capacities. The Texas projects are slated for completion and commissioning by fiscal year 2026.

Congressman Brian Babin, representing Texas’s 36th district and Baytown city, highlighted the economic benefits of JSW Steel USA’s investments in Texas, asserting, “The ‘Lone Star State’ provides an excellent environment for business growth and economic opportunities”.

Atul Keshap, President of the US-India Business Council (USIBC), commended initiatives like JSW’s investment as fostering closer US-India ties grounded in trust and mutual progress. He remarked, “Such collaborations pave the way for continued convergence between the two nations”.

JSW Steel USA’s strategic move not only supports the expansion of America’s renewable energy sector but also reinforces its commitment to sustainable growth and local job creation in Texas.

The investment underscores JSW Group’s global vision to contribute significantly to green energy infrastructure while leveraging local resources and expertise to meet evolving market demands.
