AN OUTSTANDING PARTNERSHIP WITH A RENOWNED STEEL PRODUCER
Since the founding of VAI (originally VOEST-ALPINE Industrieanlagenbau – a predecessor company of Primetals Technologies) in 1956, more than 500 individual steelworks projects have been completed and successfully implemented for the renowned quality steel producer voestalpine at their Linz- and Donawitz-based steel mills in Austria. This parade of projects, which commenced with the turnkey supply of the LD Converter Plant No. 2 in Linz in the year 1959, has grown over the years to eventually cover every step in the iron and steel production process. The list of plant projects includes coking plants, sintering plants, blast furnaces, steelmaking converters and continuous casters of all types all the way to rolling mills, strip-processing lines and finishing lines. Project references also include plate mills, bar and wire rod mills, tube and section mills in addition to the associated electrical, automation, environmental, media-supply and water-treatment systems. Many of the depicted plant references shown on this 4-page mosaic photograph of the voestalpine Stahl Linz steelworks are projects that voestalpine and Primetals Technologies have jointly implemented together.
