INTERPIPE STEEL – metallurgy of the new generation
INTERPIPE STEEL is the first metallurgical plant, built from scratch in Ukraine over the years of independence. Total volume of investment - $700 million.
The mill combines innovative steel-melting technologies, a new approach to the production culture, and contemporary art installations by Olafur Eliasson - part and parcel of the enterprise.
Such combination represents a new metallurgical production philosophy of the 21st century – a new phase in industry development.
High-technology production facilities
INTERPIPE STEEL has been designed and built to provide the Company's mills with own high quality steel billets for pipe and railway wheels production. The idea behind the construction of the new electric steel-smelting complex, INTERPIPE STEEL, was to replace the outdated, energy-consuming, open hearth production method with a more progressive, electro-smelting method of steel production.
As for the level of technology, working conditions, and ecological standards, this is a new phase in industry development.
The new mill is a "green" investment for INTERPIPE Company. INTERPIPE STEEL is equipped with state-of-the-art, ecologically safe technology:
- Efficient gas purification system, ensuring reduction of dust emissions to the atmosphere;
- Special bonnet at the electric arc steel-melting furnace, reducing the noise level significantly;
- Closed cycle of the water supply system, ensuring the complete elimination of industrial waste water discharge to the Dnipro River.
New production culture
INTERPIPE STEEL is the mill, where human values and needs top the chart. The unique production culture is comprised of components such as: modern conveniences in production and administrative work areas, specifically designed uniforms designated for each department and onsite cafeteria available for personnel.
