Commissioning of two 100t ingot casting cars at OVAKO, Sweden
Two 100t casting cars are being commissioned at Ovako One of the largest casting cars that INTECO has ever designed is due to be commissioned shortly. The first of the two 100t cars, which are being installed at the Swedish steel producer Ovako, has already been delivered and on-site erection is progressing despite all the current obstacles. A particular challenge to be managed is that erection has to take place during casting operation. The hot commissioning was planned for the 1st quarter, but the restrictions imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic have delayed the hot commissioning to the 2nd quarter.
Finally, the first casts were successfully made shortly after the Swedish Midsommar Fest. The installation of the second casting carriage, which will be installed at a later date due to the limited space available, is planned for the summer of 2020.
