Project Description

ThyssenKrupp Nirosta GmbH

The NIFO Project (Nirosta Ferrite Optimization)

ThyssenKrupp Nirosta GmbH is intending to effect a stage-by-stage removal of the Dusseldorf-Benrath cold rolling mill to Krefeld in Germany. The measures involved represent a capital investment of some EUR 244 million. It is intended to be completed by 2016.

The merger of the two production stands in Krefeld is to make production faster and more flexible for current market requirements.

Under the NIFO Project, the plant and equipment will be extensively reconstructed and modernised.

In Krefeld, a new annealing/pickling production line and a new cold rolling mill stand are to be erected and installed, as well as an annealing/pickling stand converted to a non-oxidising ‘bright’ annealing production line. Some out-of-date plant and equipment is to be closed down.

The measures also include among other things, the removal of an annealing/pickling stand and the bell-cover annealing furnace from Dusseldorf-Benrath to Krefeld, Germany.
