Quick provisional acceptance / commercial start-up at Nucor Steel Sedalia

The minimill has been operating in steady, endless casting-rolling mode since a few days after the first heat

The fast ramp-up of the Danieli MIDA plant at Nucor Steel Sedalia is continuing.

The MIDA-ECR minimill established continuous casting and rolling endless operation on day 3, achieved the design casting speed on day 5, producing a billet more than 1 km long.

On February 18, after it had produced more than 500 short tons of rebar #4 in endless mode, the provisional acceptance / commercial start-up certificate was signed.

This new milestone, achieved less than three weeks after the first heat, once again confirms the full reliability of the MIDA-ECR process.

Nucor Steel Sedalia (NSSED) is the tenth Danieli minimill featuring Endless Casting-Rolling ECR technology for long products in operation worldwide, and the third in operation in the USA.

This will be followed soon by the second MIDA-ECR plant ordered by Nucor from Danieli, which is under construction in Frostproof, Florida.

By the end of 2020, sixteen Danieli MIDA-ECR minimills will be in operation worldwide.
