Linz/Dorf an der Pram, 3. August 2015 – Within the framework of the SEK MET 4 project of the Steel Division of voestalpine Corporation at the Linz location, the SEK 3.1 installation for exhaust filtration of three ladle furnaces together with a bunker suction group and a conditioner stand is built. The mechanical installation works, such as constructional steel work, pipe work, crude gas/clean gas channels, clean gas chimney, ventilator system as well as reconfiguration works on the existing parts of the installation are performed by SGS Industrial Services. Around 850 tons steel structures and equipment, as well as insulation and sheeting material, are installed by more than 30 SGS specialists within the framework of the several-month SEKU 3.1 project.
