Andritz receives another major order from Baosteel Group for stainless steel mill expansion

(PresseBox) (Graz, ) International Technology Group Andritz received a major order from Baosteel Group, the largest steel producer in China, to supply an annealing and pickling line for cold-rolled stainless steel strip and a skin pass mill for the new stainless steel mill in Shanghai, China. The annual capacity is 370,000 tons; start-up is scheduled for May 2009. The order value is approximately 45 MEUR.

After having ordered an annealing and pickling line for hot-rolled stainless steel strip from Andritz in 2006 – just recently the line successfully started production – Baosteel’s stainless steel division placed a follow-up order for an annealing and pickling line for cold-rolled stainless steel strip including an inline skin pass mill and a separate off-line skin pass mill. Andritz will be responsible for engineering, supervision of erection and start-up of the lines as well as for the supply of key equipment.

This order once again confirms the Andritz Group’s position as leading full-line supplier of strip processing lines and cold rolling mills to the global stainless steel industry.
