Salzgitter AG’s subsidiary Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH has launched its “Hot Dip Galvanizing 3” (FV3) project and one of its largest single investments of the last decade. The plant engineering SMS Group based in Düsseldorf is the company’s project partner. The new production facility, with an annual capacity of 500,000 tonnes, supplements SZFG’s already existing hot dip galvanizing lines.

FV3 is due to become operational in 2022. Advanced-high strength steels for chassis and body applications that play an important role in lightweight automotive construction and in vehicle security are then to be produced.

The new facilities will produce hot-dip galvanized strips with thicknesses of between 0.7 and 2.5 millimeters and width of between 900 and 1,700 millimeters. The strip that is wound into coils has a maximum weight of 32 tons.

The production of high-strength and advanced-high strength steel grades is enabled through the very high cooling rates and the integration of an oxidization/reduction process in FV3’s furnace.
