Danieli Bags Mariupol Cold Strip Mill Complex Order from Metinvest
Ukrainian steel producer Metinvest has contracted Danieli to supply a new cold rolled, galvanized and color coated coil production complex, to be implemented at Ilyich Steel in Mariupol in Ukraine. The complex will produce 1.6 million tonnes per year of quality cold rolled strip products, of which over 600,000 tonnes per year will be galvanized coils and more than 170,000 tonnes per year will be polymer coated coils for the domestic and European construction and automotive markets. The final strip thickness will be down to 0.25 mm for coils in widths up to 1,600 mm. The first coil will be produced by Q3 of 2024.
The project comprises the construction of a continuous tandem cold-rolling mill combined with a pickling line, as well as two strip processing lines for zinc, zinc-aluminium and polymer coatings. The pickling line coupled to the five stand cold mill will be based on Turboflo technology and preceded by a powerful scale breaker to improve strip shape and cleaning efficiency.
The mill will feature Danieli OSRT shaped rolls for superior flatness-correction below 5IU. Strip thickness tolerance will be 0.6%, with head& tail off-gauge length lower than four meters. Within the galvanizing line the Danieli Kohler X-Jet wiping system will perform extremely accurate control of final zinc coating thickness, down to 30 grams per square meter on each side at 150 meters per minute. The induction technology implemented for the in-line painting section will allow to produce high quality polymer coated strips.
The installed technologies will allow Metinvest to produce in the greenest way at the most competitive production costs, and with emissions much lower than actual standards.
