Metinvest Group has launched 1700 Hot Strip Mill at Ilyich Iron and Steel Works in in Mariupol following its reconstruction. Virtually the whole mill was upgraded in the course of the revamp: equipment and technology were supplied by Primetals Technologies Austria. Metinvest Group invested USD 110 million in the project. The new reversing mill with equipment for vertical breakdown of slabs is equipped with an automated control system, which allows to produce quality feedstock for the finishing mill. The coilbox installed after the roughing mill provides for intermediate coiling of long workpieces during the production of heavy coils. A large-scale revamp of 1700 HSM began in 2017 and had several phases. In the first phase, reheat furnace No. 1 was commissioned and a heavy-duty coiler was installed. In the second phase, an intermediate coiler (coilbox) was installed along with hydraulic descalers, a reversing roughing mill, and other process equipment. The finishing mill stands were also reinforced and modernized.

Due to the revamp of 1700 HSM, Ilyich Steel expanded its production capabilities, where the 250 mm slabs produced by new Continuous Caster No. 4 will be rolled to the specific size range, and the coil weight will be increased to 30 tonne.
