Project Description

ThyssenKrupp Nirosta GmbH

New construction of the rolling stand SG5 in Krefeld

With a further large capital investment, ThyssenKrupp Nirosta again bolstered the Krefeld Works in the long term. A cold rolling stand was erected for an overall capital investment of approx. EUR 28 million.

The foundation stone for this construction stage was laid in March 2003. The first strips were already rolled out in February 2004, two months earlier than originally planned.

In the summer of 2004, the plant already achieved full production status with a capacity of 10,000 tonnes per month.

With twenty rollers, this modern plant is capable of milling the stainless steel to an average gauge of 0.8 mm, but even a gauge of 0.2 mm is possible – at a speed of around 800 metres per minute, i.e. at around 48 km/h.

In the framework of the project management, VIB was responsible for:

  • Project organisation and coordination
  • Schedule planning, time schedule, deadline monitoring
  • Cost planning, controlling and monitoring
