Tenova, through its Tenova LOI Italimpianti business unit, will supply a seamless pipe mill to ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Jubail in Saudi Arabia. In the first phase, Tenova will supply one rotary hearth furnace for the hot mill and one heat-treating line that consists of one hardening furnace and quench system and one tempering furnace and related material-handling equipment. The furnaces will be equipped with LOI Italimpianti low-NOx burners to cope with the restrictive pollution requirements of Saudi Arabia.
In the second phase, Tenova will supply a second heat-treating line that will include a spray quench system, descalers and material-handling devices to move pipes in between the hardening and tempering furnace. The plant is a joint venture of ArcelorMittal and Bin Jaralalh Group.
