South Steel

Bar mill designed with long-term durability

SOLB benefits from both smooth processes and an entirely tailor-made solution. Combined with a pelletizing and a direct-reduced iron (DRI) plant, the minimill forms the core of a fully integrated steel complex - from pelletizing right through to the finished rolled product. This configuration ensures highly efficient production at low operational costs.

Included here is an HSD® (High Speed Delivery) system that boosts mill productivity. This ensures a maximum finish-rolling speed to the cooling bed of 41 m/s for 8 and 10 mm rebars.
