Advisory service, technical assistance and refurbishment from Danieli Service

USCO Stainless Steel complex is back to production


United Stainless Steel Company, USCO, relied on Danieli Service for resumption of operation at its stainless steel complex located in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

 

Supplied by Danieli in 2007, designed to produce 100,000 tonnes per annum of austenitic stainless steel in 2B and polished finish, the complex was stopped in 2011.

 

Following a recent agreement between USCO and Chromiumtrade SA, a Swiss company that will procure black coils, manage operations and market the end products, the decision to restart operations was taken.

 

Danieli Service was engaged to restore the plant to full production providing new spare parts, technical support, refurbishment and the upgrade of key equipment.

The upgrade covered the combined annealing and pickling line with in-line skin pass mill, the 20-high rolling mill, the coil grinding line, and the slitting and cut-to-length lines.

 

Among the main interventions was the technological upgrade of the pickling line to a more eco-friendly process and improved strip-steering.

 

Several enhancements were also made to the automation system and to the annealing furnace.

 

Mr. Francesco Ruffo di Calabria, CEO of Chromiumtrade SA, stated “...the superior quality seen so far will certainly simplify our distribution efforts…”.
