Stein Heurtey Awarded Order for Walking Beam Furnace
Stein Heurtey (http://www.stein-heurtey.fr) was awarded an order from Voestalpine Stahl GmbH for a 420 t/hr walking beam furnace, as well as charging and discharging equipment. The furnace will be installed next to two existing pusher furnaces of 350 t/hr per unit and upstream of the existing hot strip mill located at Linz in Austria. The main feature of the plant is the use of two fuels, natural gas and blast furnace gas with the objective being maximum use of available blast furnace gas for environmental reasons. Discharging of the first hot slab is scheduled for April 2007.
