Aperam selects Danieli for revamping of Steckel mill

Aperam South America contracted Danieli for the revamping of the Steckel mill plant at Timoteo, Minas Gerais state, in Brazil.
The purpose of the investment is to widen the product portfolio to better meet the market demand and serve high-value customers.
The upgraded Steckel mill plant will enable Aperam to produce electrical, carbon, 410T-grade stainless steel, as well as Inconel 625, Duplex 2101 and 2205, and 3xx- and 4xx-series stainless steel, Silicon Steel GNO and GO to thicknesses down to 1.8 mm.
To make this possible, Danieli will intervene in four different plant areas: the roughing mill, the new finishing Steckel mill, the laminar cooling system, and the downcoiler area.
Danieli will also modernize the Process Control and Automation system of the entire Steckel mill, integrating both new and existing equipment.
The project also will focus on environmental aspects, optimizing energy consumption and CO2 emissions
Danieli equipment, including on-board systems, are preassembled and tested in workshops before shipping to minimize on-site erection activities and shut-down time.
The plant modernization will be completed during the shutdown, which is expected by 2023.
