  • Primetals Technologies to replace BOF converter at HBIS Serbia in Smederevo

    Primetals Technologies has received an order from HBIS Group Serbia Iron & Steel LLC (HBIS Serbia) to replace BOF converter #2 at its production site in Smederovo, Serbia. The aim of the project is to improve the process and to raise production capacity. This will be achieved by increasing the converter vessel´s shell volume. At the same time, the critical outer dimensions will remain the same, so that adjacent interfaces may be kept. Modifications of the BOF pedestal or revamping of civil works are not required. The new converter will have a tapping weight of 105 metric tons and will receive, among other equipment, a Vaicon Link 2.0 suspension system and a new tilting drive. Start-up is expected for the second quarter of 2020.
