Vedanta's Sterlite Copper appoints new CEO amid battle to reopen India smelter
Updated : March 15, 2019 11:06 PM IST
Sterlite Copper, which operates a 400,000-tonne-per-year smelter in the South India port city of Thoothukudi, was forced to shut its plant by Tamil Nadu state in May, and is estimated to have lost more than $200 million since.
Kumar replaces P Ramnath, who led Sterlite for eight years. Under Ramnath, the smelter was ordered shut at least twice, including for an alleged gas leak in 2013.
