United Steel Industrial Company (KWTSteel), a Kuwaiti steel producer, has awarded Primetals Technologies an order to modernize its rebar rolling mill in the Shuaiba Industrial Area, Kuwait. Under the project the rolling mill will be equipped with an inline quenching system (PQS, Pomini Quenching System) and a new hot dividing shear with a higher capacity. The quenching system will produce the required material properties largely without the need for expensive alloying elements. This will improve KWTSteel’s access to export markets. The modernized rolling mill is scheduled to go on stream late 2015.
