Production is scheduled to start by the end of 2008. In addition to the mechanical equipment, Andritz will supply the annealing furnace and the complete pickling section with all ancillary equipment.

Baosteel Ltd., Shanghai, the largest steel producer in China, ordered an electrolytic galvanizing plant for steel strip with an annual capacity of 300,000 tons. This is the second steel strip galvanizing plant that Andritz will supply to Baosteel which confirms the customer's satisfaction with the performance of the Andritz system already installed. The project will be carried out in cooperation with the mechanical engineering and manufacturing companies of Baosteel, with Andritz assuming technological responsibility and supply of the main quality-relevant plant sections. Start-up is scheduled for August 2008.

Russian steel company NLMK, Lipezk placed an order for the erection of a hot-dip galvanizing plant with an annual capacity of approximately 300,000 tons, which is scheduled for start-up in the fourth Quarter of 2008.
