Saldanha Steel Panorama

Saldanha Steel Panorama
Saldanha Steel Saldanha Works is a largely export-focussed plant,. It is in close proximity to the deep-sea port of Saldanha and employs 568 staff. The plant was commissioned and produced its first hot rolled coil (HRC) in late 1998 and is currently producing at its designed nameplate capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per annum.


The plant is distinguished by merging leading edge technologies to produce high quality ultra thin hot rolled coil (UTHRC). The ISO 9002 and ISO 14001 accredited plant is the only steel mill in the world to have successfully combined the Corex/Midrex process into a continuous chain - replacing the need for coke ovens and blast furnaces, and making the plant a world leader in emission control and environmental management.


Facilities and technologies at Saldanha Works were specifically designed to produce 'clean' steel, with virtually no impurities such as tin and copper. The continuous production chain is exceptionally short, taking only 16 hours from the time iron ore enters the Corex or Midrex units to the rolled product. The individual processes are linked very closely with virtually no process stock between the units.


In the highly competitive international HRC market, Saldanha Works has carved a niche for itself in applications requiring HRC in thicknesses of less than 1.6mm.
