Primetals Technologies has won an order from Hüttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann GmbH (HKM) to modernize LD (BOF) converter No. 2 in its Duisburg, Germany plant. The project involves fitting the converter with a new trunnion ring as well as modernizing the tilting drive. These measures will help to extend the lifetime of the converter and increase its availability. Primetals will handle the project in a consortium partnership with Buchinger Anlagen-Stahl-Rohrbau GmbH. The order is worth several million euros, and the project is scheduled for start-up in October 2016.
