VIZ Steel completed revamping of the Rolling Mill

VIZ Steel (NLMK Group) has completed revamping of the rolling mill hydraulic control system.   The project that costs RUB 12 m  improves stability and reliability of the Mill operation and reduce OPEX.

The hydraulic system manipulates the mechanisms of the rolling mill that supply, re-coil, roll and transport steel coils.  The following facilities has been replaced in the course of the revamping:  hydrolic panels, pipelines; electric equipment was replaced to the advanced one.  To avoid and extra shut-downs, the installation has been performed in a stage-by-stage manner during the scheduled downtime of the line.

The mill with the revamped hydraulic control system has the capacity of up to 100 kt of GOES per year. It is one of the 3 rolling mills being operated at the site that produce cold rolled steel of min. 0.23-0.5 mm thickness.
