The plant’s annual capacity is of more than 900’000 tonnes and employs approximately 250 workers.
Due to sensible application, all supplied structural sections used as stiffeners had to be in stainless steel 316L (1.4404) for corrosion resistance purposes and long life-circles.
The sections were all standard stainless steel sections according to European and Asian specifications. The material was, where available, in hot rolled execution, i.e. for channels up to size 120mm, above that and for all the beams in laser fused execution.
Why Montanstahl is the One Stop Solution Provider
All material was available off the shelf in 6m random lengths, and was cut to measure at Montanstahl according to a material optimizing cutting scheme for a turnkey installation.
The availability from stock did significantly shorten realisation times and supported plant handling over in due time.
