Ruspolymet places second follow-up order for INTECO

In June 2014 the Russian special steel producer Ruspolymet assigned INTECO with the engineering and supply of a 6t VAR plant.

This is already the second follow-up order for INTECO:  This new VAR furnace follows the 10t ESR plant sold in fall 2013 and the 2012 VIM project. The VIM is already being assembled and the ESR furnace is about to be delivered. Obviously there is no better evidence of the customer’s satisfaction with INTECO’s up to date work than placing this new order.

The highly modern vacuum arc remelting furnace will remelt the electrode produced by the VIM furnace and give Ruspolymet the opportunity to in future open up foreign markets. The produced ingots will have a max. diameter of 700 mm and an approximate weight of 6t. Furthermore the newly developed INTECO Level 2 system will allow Ruspolymet to administrate, metallurgically guide and optimize the whole process chain – VIM, ESR, VAR.

Right now Ruspolymet and INTECO are discussing further joint projects and a possible future strategic partnership.
