The new line will have an annual capacity of approximately 700,000 tonnes of cold-rolled, stainless steel strip in the 200, 300 and 400 series. Start-up of the line is planned for the end of 2022. The ANDRITZ scope of supplies and services includes the terminal equipment, three inline S6-high rolling mills, the furnace and pickling section, a skin pass mill, and automation of the complete process section.
