Tata Steel to Invest £14 Million to increase output at its Hot Strip Mill at Port Talbot, Wales

Introduction:

Tata Steel announced that it has invested more than £14 million in its Hot Strip Mill at Port Talbot allowing it to manufacture more higher-value steels for customers.

Features:

A transfer bar cooling system has been installed which will increase the annual capacity of the site by around 5% and ensure steel can be quickly brought to the exact temperature required for the final product before it is rolled.

This transfer bar cooling system will increase the volume capacity of the Hot Strip Mill by more than 150,000 tonnes per annum.

The capability upgrade is part of a series of investments to Tata Steel’s European operations designed to strengthen operations and long-term capability and allow the development and production of high-performing steels demanded by customers.

This will help meet the emerging need for next-generation steels for hybrid and electric cars, as well as for energy-efficient homes and buildings and innovative food packaging.

Port Talbot produces high-quality steel which is processed at Tata Steel’s steel mills around the UK for manufacturers in Britain, mainland Europe and other countries around the world.
