On Ltd. "VIZ-Stal" began reconstruction of the two lines of units decarburization annealing, which will organize production chain mastering the production of premium kind of high permeability transformer steel steel (UPU). Planned capacity will amount to about 70 thousand tons
The project, implemented jointly with LOI Thermprocess (Germany) in the framework of the program of technical re-equipment and provides unification of complex heat treatment furnaces for transformer steel in the final thickness. Its total cost will be about 2.4 billion rubles. In 2011 it is planned to carry out the design of the new unit and the dismantling of the existing equipment. Start the furnace into operation in 2013
As part of the organization of production of EPS at «VIZ-Stal" also begun installation of equipment reversing cold rolling mill capacity of 75 thousand tons / year. The new complex will be located in the rolling cold rolling shop on the site of the dismantled camp. Has now been implemented in full supply of technological equipment and foundation work completed. In the coming months to make installation of mechanical, electrical and power equipment, to ensure the power supply, to commissioning and guarantee tests of all systems.
Complete construction of reversible cold rolling mill is planned before the end of this year. The project, worth about 1.4 billion rubles. carried out jointly with the company «Andritz-Sundwig» (Germany).
