Hot rolling mill from Primetals Technologies produces first coil in Vietnam for Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Co.
Primetals Technologies has supplied a hot rolling mill to the new steel works in Vung Ang, Vietnam, which is owned by the Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Corporation (FHS). The first coil was rolled at the end of December 2015. The rolling mill produces a wide range of steel – from quality grades up to API and TRIP grades, and has a capacity of 5.3 million metric tons of hot strip per year. Primetals Technologies was responsible for all the mechanical equipment, and supervised the erection and commissioning. The stands in the finishing mill are equipped with pair cross technology for optimal closed-loop control of the profile and flatness.
