INTECO wins big revamping project for JSC OEMK
Beginning of August INTECO has received the order for the revamping of the existing bloom caster No.3 from the Russian steel producer JSC OEMK, based in Stariy Oskol. The project contains basically the renewal of all existing equipment between the tundish and the torch cutting unit. The 4 strand caster with a casting radius of 12 m and a section size of 300x360 mm will be equipped with latest state of the art features e.g. mechanical soft reduction and powder thickness measurement system.
After the excellent Continuous Casting project at Shagang/China, this new order represents another milestone for the INTECO continuous casting division and of course also is a great reference for this product segment on the Russian market.
Based on a strict time schedule INTECOs engineering departments have commenced work right after contract signature, as commissioning is already planned for summer 2019.
