В A new line for the production of electrical steel has been launched in China

The Chinese company Baoshan Iron & Steel Co (Baosteel), part of the world's largest metallurgical group Baowu, announced the commissioning of a new line for the production of cold-rolled oriented (dynamic) steel at its main metal plant in Shanghai.
Implementation of the project, which is the second stage of expansion capacity for the production of this product, started at the end of December 2022. The productivity of the new line is 160,000 tons per year. At the same time, it will mainly produce especially thin products with a thickness of up to 0.2 mm.

As Baosteel declares, a number of technical innovations were introduced during the implementation of the project. In particular, according to its data, the line is equipped with the fastest and most energy-efficient firing furnaces in the world with hydrogen recycling.

With the launch of the new line, its total dynamic steel production capacity has reached 1.16 million tons per year. In this, the share of products with a thickness of slightly more than 0.27% now makes up about 75% of its assortment. Such steel is used, in particular, in electric vehicles and alternative energy.

In the future, the company plans to start the implementation of the next stage — another specialized line for the production of particularly thin dynamic steel with a capacity of up to 220,000 tons per year.
