Primetals Technologies supplies ERT-EBROS billet welding system for Union Iron & Steel rolling mill


Emirati steel producer Union Iron & Steel Company LLC (Union Iron & Steel) has placed an order with

Primetals Technologies to supply ERT-EBROS endless rolling technology for the company's existing bar

rolling mill in Mussafah Industrial Area, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The aim is to boost plant

output and utilization levels. The system welds together billets intended for rolling, thus enabling a

continuous rolling process with a consistently high product quality. The new ERT-EBROS plant is

scheduled to commence operation in the late 2017 and will pay for itself within less than two years. It is

the first system of its kind in the Middle East.
