The ANDRITZ scope of supply and services comprises the complete hot-dip galvanizing line, in particular the furnace with the latest annealing technology for high-strength steel grades (Generation 3 AHSS), strip cleaning, mechanical equipment including strip transport and skin pass mill, electrical equipment, automation, and start-up of the plant.
Following the order to supply a pickling line and rolling mills for Nucor’s new cold-rolling mill in Hickman, AR, last year, ANDRITZ succeeded in convincing Nucor once again with its innovative technologies for the hot-dip galvanizing line.
Nucor Corporation, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, is the largest US steel producer, with a production capacity of over 24 million tons per annum, and is also the largest “mini-mill” steelmaker (i.e. the company uses electric arc furnaces to melt steel scrap instead of blast furnaces for smelting iron).
ANDRITZ is a globally leading supplier of plants, equipment, and services for hydropower stations, the pulp and paper industry, the metal working and steel industries, and for solid/liquid separation in the municipal and industrial segments. Other important fields of business are animal feed and biomass pelleting, as well as automation, where ANDRITZ offers a wide range of innovative products and services in the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) sector under the brand name of Metris. In addition, the international technology Group is active in power generation (steam boiler plants, biomass power plants, recovery boilers, and gasification plants) and environmental technology (flue gas cleaning plants) and offers equipment for the production of nonwovens, dissolving pulp, and panelboard, as well as recycling plants.
A passion for innovative technology, absolute customer focus, reliability, and integrity are the central values to which ANDRITZ commits. The listed Group is headquartered in Graz, Austria. With over 160 years of experience, 29,000 employees, and more than 280 locations in over 40 countries worldwide, ANDRITZ is a reliable and competent partner and helps its customers to achieve their corporate and sustainability goals.
