voestalpine, an international technology company producing industrial goods, has awarded Primetals
Technologies an order to supply a four-strand continuous bloom caster for its Leoben steel works. The
CC4 plant will replace the existing CC2 continuous caster. In four-strand operation, it is designed to
produce 950,000 metric tons of highest quality blooms per annum. A fifth strand can be added to
increase the production capacity if needed at a later date. The new plant is scheduled to be brought into
operation at the end of 2019, when it will become the world's most modern caster of its type. The plant is
also Industry 4.0 compatible.
