Primetals Tangshan and Tangshan Quanfeng extend thin-slab caster service contract
by David Fleschen
Chinese steel producer Tangshan Quanfeng has signed a maintenance services contract with Primetals Tangshan Technology Services (PTTS). Over the last three years, PTTS has provided Quanfeng with high-quality offline services for the entire thin-slab caster at its plant located in Tangshan, Hebei province, China. The services have included the refurbishment of segments and rollers.
Thanks to the quality of the maintenance work, Quanfeng could achieve higher productivity, develop additional steel grades, and produce steels of higher quality. Therefore, Quanfeng has now decided to extend the contract for another three years. With hundreds of experienced workers and experts in the field of metallurgical services, PTTS will provide maintenance services for the entire thin-slab caster.
Established in 2018, Tangshan Quanfeng is owned by Donghua Steel, a part of the larger Shuangying Group. Donghua Steel has an annual capacity of 5.5 million tons of liquid steel and produces high-strength rebar for the domestic and international markets. Its thin-slab caster features key equipment and process control systems from Primetals Technologies.
PTTS was established in 2017 and is a joint venture between Primetals Technologies and HBIS Tangsteel. It is headquartered in Tangshan and has operations in several locations in China. PTTS provides comprehensive services in off-line maintenance, equipment refurbishment, condition monitoring, and operational support for slab casters.
