Pomina 2 Steel Corporation, branch of Pomina Steel Joint Stock Company, one of the largest Vietnamese steel manufacturer, awarded a new cold rolling mill complex to Tenova, to be realized in Ba Ria Vung Tau Province – Vietnam – for high quality products based on the highest standards in the market.
The cold complex layout has been designed to optimize coil storage, material flow and facility productivity to meet the needs of a firm in possible future expansion. In addition, the project has been conceived to offer a sustainable solution by minimizing waste emissions in the acid regeneration plant and in line with the stringent regulations for the cold rolling mill complex as a whole.
The project includes a push pull pickling line with acid regeneration plant, a six-high cold reversing mill, a roll grinder, a hot dip galvanizing line and a color coating line. The envisaged total production is 375,000 t/year of high quality pre-painted galvanized and cold rolled coils, with the provision of future expansion to almost double the capacity.
The incoming hot-rolled strip has a width up to 1250 mm with thickness from 1,6 to 4 mm. The output strip will have a thickness ranging from 3 to 0,2 mm.
The cold rolling mill and the hot dip galvanizing line have been designed to offer the client the most up-to-date technological solutions in the market. The cold rolling mill has a maximum rolling speed of 1400 m/min with automatic gauge, flatness control systems and multi-zone cooling. The hot dip galvanizing line will be equipped with Tenova own air knife system, offering a complete in-house technological package.
The plant will be full operative within the end of 2018 and allows Pomina 2 to enter in the production of flat products for the domestic and external market.
Tenova was awarded this contract following the past projects realized in Pomina Group for steel making including two Consteel® EAFs, Tenova proprietary technology, and thanks to the numerous successful references earned in Vietnam over the past years. The awarded and executed projects confirmed Tenova valuable reputation in Vietnam and increased its market share in the region for high-quality products.
