The Mill Housings for the New Rolling Mill have arrived
Monday, August 6, two mill housings for the new rolling mill has been delivered to NLMK DanSteelís harbour.
The mill housings, weighing 300 tons each, required a particularly large crane to be unloaded, so an agreement was made with a floating crane that could do the heavy lifting.
The mill housings will be installed in connection with the modernization shutdown in weeks 34-40.
The revamp includes the installation of a new 4.2m heavy plate stand, new hot plate leveller, roller tables, roll shop, automation, power supply and hydraulic and IT systems.
The new mill is designed for plates between 5-200mm in thickness and widths of up to 4,000mm.
