Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant received the first batch of the main technological equipment for the construction of a continuous hot-dip galvanizing unit No. 5 (ANGTs-5) with a capacity of 450 thousand tons of rolled metal per year. The project, worth more than 12 billion rubles, will make it possible to produce thin and high-strength rolled products with a high degree of corrosion protection. As a result, manufacturers of cars, household appliances, builders will receive a product from which they can make lighter, stronger and more environmentally friendly products.
The equipment for the unit is manufactured by Tenova (Italy). The technological line will be installed in a separate building with an area of more than 15 thousand m2. Currently, foundation work is underway, metal structures of the future production building are being assembled. Installation of technological equipment is scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2021.
Currently, galvanized steel at the Lipetsk site is produced at four units with a total capacity of 1.25 million tons per year. The launch of ANGTs-5 in 2022 will allow NLMK Group to increase its output of high value-added products and strengthen its competitive advantage in the production of rolled products with promising types of protective coatings.
