Pomina 2 Steel Corporation, a branch of Pomina Steel Joint Stock Company, which is one of Vietnam’s largest steel manufacturers, has awarded the contract for a new cold rolling mill complex to Tenova. The complex will be established in Ba Ria Vung Tau Province and aims to produce high quality products based on the highest standards in the market.
The cold complex layout has been designed to optimise coil storage, material flow and facility productivity to meet the immediate needs of the company as well as cater for possible future expansion.
In addition, the project has been conceived to offer a sustainable solution by minimising waste emissions in the acid regeneration plant and in line with the stringent regulations for the cold rolling mill complex as a whole.
The project includes a push pull pickling line with acid regeneration plant, six-high cold reversing mill, roll grinder, hot dip galvanising line and colour coating line.
The envisaged total annual production is 375,000 tonnes of high quality pre-painted galvanised and cold rolled coils, with the provision of future expansion to almost double the capacity.
The incoming hot-rolled strip has a width up to 1250mm with thickness from 1.6 to 4mm. The output strip will have a thickness ranging from 3 to 0.2mm.
The cold rolling mill and hot dip galvanising line have been designed to offer the client the most up-to-date technological solutions in the market. It will have a maximum rolling speed of 1400 m/min with automatic gauge, flatness control systems and multi-zone cooling.
The hot dip galvanising line will be equipped with Tenova's air knife system, offering a complete in-house technological package.
The plant will be full operative by the end of 2018 and will allow Pomina 2 to enter in the production of flat products for the domestic and external market.
Tenova was awarded this contract following the past projects realised in Pomina Group for steelmaking including two Consteel® EAFs and Tenova proprietary technology as well as numerous references earned in Vietnam over the past years.
The awarded and executed projects confirmed Tenova valuable reputation in Vietnam and increased its market share in the region for high quality products.
