On 26 September 2019, only 14 months from the placement of the order, steel customer Ningbo Iron & Steel Co Ltd China issued to SMS group the FAC for the successful execution of the laminar cooling modernization in its HSM. The 3/4continuously operating HSM is located in the Zhejiang province roughly 200 km south from Shanghai at the bay of the East China Sea. The rolling mill consists of three walking beam furnaces for slab reheating, a two-stand roughing mill, a seven-stand finishing train, the run-out table with the laminar cooling system as well as three down coilers. The mill capacity is 4 million tons per year in the strip thickness range between 1.2 and 19 millimeters and strip widths between 900 and 1,630 millimeters. The rolled steel material are grades for household and building industry applications as well as grades for the automotive industry.

The main targets of the cooling train modernization were on the one hand improved cooling performance with tighter tolerances for the coiling temperature and on the other hand the extension of the product mix by dual phase steel grades DP 600 and DP 800 for automotive purposes, pipe grades X60 and higher as well as non-grain oriented electrical steel.
