  • Tata Steel restarts blast furnace revamped by Primetals Technologies at Port Talbot in Wales

    In late January, a blast furnace revamped by Primetals Technologies was relit at Tata Steel Europe´s steelworks in Port Talbot in South Wales, United Kingdom. The aim of this major investment project was to extend the useful life of Blast Furnace 5 and thus strengthen the position of Britain´s biggest steelworks. Primetals Technologies won the contract to execute the work and was responsible for engineering, planning, equipment and material supply, demolition and erection – all to be executed during an ambitious shutdown stoppage in late 2018.
