United Steel Company - SULB

Turnkey minimill for beams and sections

SULB 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.

The EAF meltshop is designed for 1,7 Mtpy of liquid steel and integrated with the upstream Midrex process.

The rolling mill for sections covers an extreme wide range from 100 to 900mm web height and a wide variety of products on order to serve flexibly the market demand in the Middle-East region.
