By mid-June, according to the schedule, the tests of the roughing stand of the new Danieli-Freling hot-rolling mill will be completed.
In late June the stand will be put into operation and will start producing plates with the thickness of 20-210 mm.
The finishing stand will be commissioned in the third part of June. The tests will focus on producing rolls.
The capacity of the project is 166 thousand tons, though it could produce twice as much.
Since 2012, when the project started, investments have already exceeded 45 billion rubles. (Ukrainian metal)
