First Heat at the new Special Steel Plant in Frisa
Posted on 25 August 2016
After only two years’ time the first heat was carried out under the supervision of INTECO’s metallurgical experts at the new stainless steel plant at Grupo Frisa.
In 2014 the new stainless steel plant project was assigned to INTECO by Grupo Frisa including an INTECO EAF, LF, VD Unit, an alloy addition and an ingot casting plant. The worldwide known Mexican manufacturer of open die forgings and rolled rings aim was to produce a wide range of ingots of varying weights and dimensions on its own.
After the supply of equipment, installation started in December 2015.
By the end of spring 2016 installation was completed and followed by intensive cold commissioning activities. These finally led to the first heat which was successfully carried out in August.
This incredible performance and swift achievement of all project goals was only possible due to the outstanding teamwork between the clients’ team and the INTECO group members on site.
