Major project win for two furnaces in Brazil, Jun 12, 2012



Between February and June 2012, Calderys Italy will be supplying 2,500 tons of refractory lining to two walking beam furnaces at the Gerdau Acominas plant in the State of Alagoas in North-eastern Brazil, for Italian furnace builder Tenova. The project includes preshaped blocks from Calderys Iberica, bricks from Calderys India, and castables, anchors and insulating bricks from Calderys Italy, which also handled the design and engineering side. Calderys Italy underlines the importance of cross-country coordination and teamwork: The key to winning a contract of this size was Calderys Group capacity to provide the whole package, and a tailor-made technical solution. By drawing on the Calderys worldwide network, Calderys Italia has been able to win a key reference in the Brazilian reheating furnace industry.
