In January 2018, the venture, JFE Meranti Myanmar has ordered two high- performance processing lines from CMI Industry Metals, an international technology provider for the steel and metals industry, with headquarter in Belgium. The new continuous hot-dip galvanizing and color coating lines are to be erected in Myanmar's Thilawa Special Economic Zone.

With this investment JFE Meranti Myanmar, that is held by a Singapore-based holding company, owned by JFE Steel, Meranti Steel, JFE Shoji, Marubeni-Itochu Steel and Hanwa, is going to cater for the steadily growing steel demand in Myanmar, and reduce the percentage of steel products that are currently imported into the country. The hot dip galvanizing line capacity will reach 180,000 tons/year and the color-coating line a capacity of 90,000 tonne per year.

The new lines, aiming at a high level of production flexibility and strip quality, feature the full spectrum of CMI’s process technologies: Multi-stage cleaning sections and ultra- low emission furnaces.

Next to a twin pot system to enable both zinc and zinc-aluminum coatings, the CGL line additionally features CMI’s patented jet cooling system with energy recovery, Air-Knife and APC Blowstab low vibration cooling system, as well as an Inline skin pass mill and Tension leveler, Chemical roll-coat post treatment, and rotary Exit shear.

While the galvanizing line is planned to begin operation early 2020, the color coating line is supposed to enter into operation at the end of 2019.

This project further strengthens CMI’s leading position for the complete supply of high- performance processing lines.
