Turkish steel producer Erdemir awarded Primetals Technologies an order to supply a turnkey, continuous galvanizing line for its Ereğli Plant on the Black Sea coast. The project includes erection and civil works and will be handled in an open consortium with a local Turkish company. The line will process 350,000 metric tons of IF steel and high-strength cold strip per year for use in the automotive industry with a focus on exposed parts. To this end, Primetals Technolologies provides a special process know-how package. This opens up a new market segment for Erdemir. The project is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2018.
