Heavy-plate mill for pipe grades

Vyksa Steel is one of Russia’s leading manufacturers of line pipes. It’s no coincidence that the company chose SMS group to supply both the new 5.0 m heavy-plate mill and the large-diameter pipe making plant. Furthermore, we supported Vyksa Steel in developing process technologies for the reproducible production of high-strength pipe grades up to strength class X120.
