Primetals Technologies to supply new Minimill with EAF Quantum and WinLink to GPH Ispat in Bangladesh


GPH Ispat Ltd., a manufacturer of long products based in Chittagong, Bangladesh, has commissioned

Primetals Technologies to supply a minimill with a total annual capacity of 815,000 metric tons of

finished products and billets. The order includes an EAF Quantum electric arc furnace, a ladle furnace, a

three-strand, high-speed continuous billet caster, and a bar and section mill. WinLink Flex from Primetals

Technologies will be installed for the first time worldwide. This concept not only allows virtually

uninterrupted casting and rolling of long products, but also reduces investment and operating costs. The

new minimill meltshop is scheduled to come into operation early 2018.
