LOI Receives Orders in Ukraine and China
Additionally, Baoshan Iron and Steel, China, is expanding their facility and has contracted LOI to supply line #2 and line #3 for the LOI heavy-plate heat treatment facility, which has been operated successfully since the beginning of 2005. One line will be a roller hearth furnace for normalizing, and the second a roller hearth furnace for tempering. The furnaces will be used to heat treat alloyed carbon steel and high-alloy steel plates. Commissioning of the highly automated system is expected to be at the beginning of 2007.
