The industrial complex will be constructed in close vicinity to Tulachermet’s existing iron mill, with the 36-month project beginning this autumn.
"Over the past few years, Strabag has built steel mills of similar dimensions and complexity. This new contract highlights our excellence in the construction of industrial plants,” said Strabag SE CEO Thomas Birtel, whose role on the executive board includes responsibility for the Russian market.
Under the terms of the contract, Strabag agreed to construct turnkey production halls and an administrative building, to set up the production facilities, to create a railway link, access roads and outdoor installations including all supply and disposal facilities. It will also install the production facilities – as provided by the client – of the converter-based steel plant with its cupola continuous casting machine and two refined iron rolling mills. The steel plant will be designed for an annual production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of refined steel, steel rods and wire.
