The Tashkent Metallurgical Plant was started up during the grand opening ceremony attended by government officials and industry leaders. Designed and supplied by Danieli, this complex is the largest investment project in the metallurgical industry of Uzbekistan, for the production of cold rolled galvanized and color coated flat products. Uzbekistan president Mr Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the enterprise where the latest Danieli cold-rolling and strip-processing technologies and automation processes are installed and in operation and said “This is one of the most modern industrial facilities not only in our republic, but also in the countries of Central Asia.”
Toshkent Metallurgiya Zavodi and MetProm awarded Danieli the design and supply of the most advanced Cold Mill Complex in May 2018. The push-pull pickling section -based on Danieli Turboflo technology- combines highly-efficient tank design and process control to ensure the production of iron oxide-free strip over the entire product range and strip speeds. The two-stand reversing mill, which will operate at up to 1,200 meters per minute, features an optimized mill layout configuration and an advanced tuning system for mill threading and tailing out sequences that will lead to a high material yield. The hot-dip galvanizing line will produce CQ, DQ, DDQ, and HSLA coated grades with excellent coating uniformity (down to 40 g/m2 each side at 180 mpm) of strip in thicknesses from 0.3 to 1.2 mm and widths from 800 to 1,250 mm. The 300,000-tpy color-coating line features coaters based on single-slide design that allow specific paint thickness to be applied evenly across the strip surface.
The Tashkent Metallurgical Plant will annually produce 500,000 tonnes of galvanized and colour-coated flat products. And this will make it possible to meet the needs of hundreds of enterprises engaged in the production of building materials and steel structures, household appliances, electrical and packaging for food products. Previously, this need was met mainly through imports.”
In the future, the plant products also will meet the new needs of the domestic automobile and agricultural machinery industries. At the first stage of the enterprise activity, about 400 million dollars will be saved due to the production of import-substituting products. It was also noted that in the prime cost of sandwich panels and roofing materials, the share of primary products manufactured in Uzbekistan will grow from 50 to 90%. In the context of ventilation and air conditioning systems, this figure will increase from 30 to 50%, and in consumer electronics from 35 to 50%. Consequently, the final products will become cheaper.
Tashkent Metallurgical Plant is a green production complex complying with the strictest emission laws and energy efficiency levels.
