On April 13, German plantmaker SMS Siemag announced the receipt of an order from DanSteel A/S, a Danish subsidiary of the Russian steel producer NLMK, for the comprehensive modernization of its heavy plate mill in Fredericksvaerk, Denmark.
 
The order comprises the supply of a new 4.2 m heavy plate stand, a new hot-plate leveler and the renewal of the conveying facilities as well as the pertaining X-Pact® electrical and automation package. The revamp will take place in autumn 2012.
 
The DanSteel modernization is one of the largest investments in a European heavy plate mill during the last few years. The aims of the modernization are to extend the product range and improve the product quality. At the same time, it will also establish the pre-conditions for a production increase to be realized later.
