PT Krakatau Steel, Indonesia

Turnkey hot strip mill

Indonesian company PT Krakatau Steel (PTKS) has contracted us to supply a turnkey hot strip mill. Included in the order is the entire process equipment from the slab to the coil yard, the electrical and automation systems, the auxiliary facilities, and construction of the infrastructure and bays. This is a joint project also involving Indonesian consortium member PT Krakatau Engineering.

The hot strip mill is scheduled for commissioning in early 2019 in Cilegon on the Indonesian island of Java. It will be one of the most modern facilities of this type worldwide. That means PTKS will be able to meet all demands of quality, productivity, and cost-effectiveness.
