The largest investment of its time in Finland is now complete.DATE 2022-02-03
Outokumpu’s Tornio works is the world’s most integrated stainless steel production facility. The same plant area houses the ferrochrome plant and all the steel production departments: steel foundry, hot rolling mill and cold rolling mill. In addition, the plant area has a port for exporting products from the Tornio works and importing raw materials to the works.
The new ferrochrome plant in Tornio was inaugurated in June 2013, doubling the production capacity in Northern Finland of ferrochrome, which is used as raw material to produce stainless steel.
Alfa Laval delivered new air and plate heat exchangers for cooling the sintering plant and steel plant water. The air heat exchangers are located on the roof of the expanded plant and, due to their sheer size, can be seen from quite a distance.
The Fincoil FBLG is an industrial heavy-duty air-cooled radiator, suitable for the cooling of various process liquids and designed to customers' specifications.
Outokumpu chose Alfa Laval’s heat exchangers after making technical and financial comparisons.
