Tata Steel IJmuiden BV, a Dutch steel producer, has awarded Primetals Technologies an order to supply
a new continuous slab caster. The plant will be constructed on a "process turnkey" basis. It is designed
to produce around 2.7 million metric tons of slabs per annum and will cast high-quality grades for end
applications in the automotive industry, for example. A number of technology packages will ensure that
the slabs have high interior and surface quality making the caster the currently most modern plant of its
kind. The plant is scheduled for commissioning in March 2019.
