Tata Steel IJmuiden BV, a Dutch steel producer, has awarded Primetals Technologies an order to supply a new continuous slab caster. The plant will be constructed on a “process turnkey” basis. It is designed to produce around 2.7 million metric tons of slabs per annum and will cast high-quality grades for end applications in the automotive industry, for example.
