Italian plant maker Danieli has announced that it will supply a new long product mini-mill to Russia-based AO Steel Works Balakovo to be installed in Balakovo in the Saratov region of Russia.
The new mini-mill is scheduled to start production by 2024. The mini-mill will produce 1.46 million metric tons of high-quality billets, blooms, beams and rails, intended to supply the Russian and international markets. Special consideration is being given to the environment to minimize carbon emissions.
In addition, the Danieli Centro Combustion walking-beam reheating furnace will allow future operation with a mixture of natural gas and hydrogen.
