BSRM Steel mill in Chittaggong, Bangladesh is upgrading its continuous rolling mill. The Danieli engineering team implemented a 5-strand slitting which increases productivity for the smaller bars.
Additionally, a new offline cutting area is being added to improved finished line management. The new rolling mill segment will be able to separate and feed two parallel lines from longer to shorter customer requested lengths at a rate of 36mt per hour.
Presently, BSRM has an annual production capacity of 1.6mn mt of re-rolling steel and 2mn mt of billet. Annual rod production will is expected to increase by 500,000mt by mid-2023 after this upgrade.
