Hyundai issues final acceptance certificate for continuous bloom caster supplied by Primetals Technologies


Korean steel maker Hyundai Steel issued the final acceptance certificate (FAC) for a continuous bloom

casting machine supplied by Primetals Technologies to the Dangjin production facility. The caster is

designed to produce 1.1 million metric tons of blooms per year. It is part of a new plant set up for the

production of special steels for the automotive industry, for which Primetals Technologies also supplied a

bar mill and a wire rod mill. The order had been awarded to Primetals Technologies in early 2014. The

caster was started up in October 2015, one month ahead of schedule.
