The new continuous hot-dip galvanising unit No3, built by Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works in 2017, produced 334.6 thousand tonnes of galvanised metal in 2019. A year earlier, the unit produced 278.9 thousand tonnes of galvanised steel. As such, it is very close to the design capacity of 360 thousand tonnes per year. The unit, built on the site of sheet rolling shop No 11, is designed to manufacture products with a zinc coating, which is applied by hot-dip galvanising to thin-sheet cold-rolled products made of low-carbon steel. The equipment for the new unit was supplied by SMS group from Germany; the contract was signed in July 2015. The project cost 6 billion rubles. The cold-rolled strip without coating, which is produced by sheet rolling shop No 11, is used as a semi-finished rolled stock for the continuous hot-dip galvanising unit No 3.

In November 2017, the construction project of MMK’s continuous hot-dip galvanising unit No 3 was recognised as the main event of the year in Russian metallurgy in 2017, which is awarded annually in the framework of the International Industrial Exhibition 'Metal-Expo'.'
