Ma'anshan Iron & Steel Co Ltd has awarded Fives a turnkey contract to revamp a continuous galvanizing line to produce new quality coated products. The existing CGL No 1 at the Ma'anshan-I site in the Anhui province of China is capable of producing 350,000 tonnes per year of zinc coated products. Once revamped, the line will be able to deliver the corrosion-resistant ZnAlMg coated steel sheets required in the home appliances and construction industries. Fives will be responsible for coordinating and project managing the revamping project. The scope also includes the design and supply of a Stein horizontal furnace, as well as modifications of the after-pot cooling tower and a post treatment section which will be equipped with a new hot air dryer and air coolers.

The project faces a double challenge: integration of the new furnace with a heat recovery system into the existing line and design of the specific equipment to meet new coating requirements. Fives possesses the technical expertise and operation practice to overcome these challenges, which is why it was selected for this project.

Fives will use a modular concept furnace to minimize the production stoppage and will provide a dedicated team for a start-up and a production ramp-up to reach quickly high-quality grades of new coated products. The project will be also supervised by Fives' subsidiary in Shanghai, China, which will be responsible for manufacturing of the furnace local portion and supply of its electrical and automation parts. The first coil is scheduled to be produced by the end of 2020.
