Posco thoroughly modernized the converter, which had been constructed in the 1980s and had reached the end of its service life. Primetals Technologies was responsible for the engineering and delivery of the tilting drive, as well as for consulting services for its installation and commissioning. The remaining converter components were installed by Posco. The modernization took place while the other two converters in steel works no. 1 remained in operation and, as a result of the good cooperation between Posco and Primetals Technologies, was completed five days before the scheduled deadline.
