Supply of Main Equipment Begins for NLMK’s New Hot-Dip Galvanizing Line

NLMK Group's, NLMK  Lipetsk, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, has received the first batch of main process equipment for the construction of its new continuous hot-dip galvanizing line (HDGL-5) with an annual capacity of 450,000 tonnes of rolled steel. This project, worth over RUB 12 billion, will enable the production of thin high-strength steel with increased corrosion resistance. As a result, NLMK will provide the automotive, white goods, and construction sectors with steels for manufacturing lighter, stronger, and more eco-friendly products.

The equipment for the unit was produced by Tenova (Italy). The process line will be installed in a separate building with an area of over 15,000 m2. Foundation works are currently underway, along with the mounting of metal structures for the future industrial building. Process equipment installation is planned for Q3 2021.

Currently, galvanized steel at NLMK Lipetsk is produced at four lines with a total annual capacity of 1.25 million tonnes. The 2022 launch of HDGL-5 will enable NLMK Group to boost its output of high-value-added products and enhance its competitive advantage in the production of rolled products with advanced protective coatings.
