EVRAZ Regina has awarded Primetals Technologies an order to upgrade their Steel Mill in Regina,
Saskatchewan, Canada. The project encompasses a complete mechanical, electrical and automation
solution from liquid steel quality improvement to finished coil, and includes the installation of a new vacuum degasser as well as the modernization of the existing slab caster, and the plate and Steckel mill.
The upgrade will enable EVRAZ Regina to produce API steel grades X70 at 1” (25.4 millimeters) thick and X80 at ¾” (19.1 millimeters) thick for production of pipe for the expanding Canadian market. The new equipment is scheduled for installation by the fourth quarter of 2016.
