Ebner Delivers Huge Steel Treatment Facility to SeverStal

Coming online just as steel prices were reaching all-time highs, the steel firm SeverStal recently opened a state-of-the-art green field steel production facility on a 1,400 acre site in Columbus, Mississippi . In keeping with SeverStal´s top quality technology, the Austrian firm Ebner delivered a hydrogen bell annealer facility. This heat treats strip steel used to produce sheet metal for the automotive industry. Ebner successfully achieved all guaranteed throughputs and consumption values, which will help enable future global cooperation with SeverStal.

Market conditions, particularly in the automotive industry, have worsened since the facility opened in the fall of 2007. In staying ahead of market trends, Ebner is developing well-insulated, air-tight ovens that significantly reduce carbon emissions by burning nitrogen instead of natural gas.
