The contract to construct a new wire rod mill has been signed between Belarusian Steel Works and the italian company danieli.
The € 100m project will be implemented within 30 months. The capacity of the new mill will reach 700,000 tonnes per year and can be subsequently increased to 1 million tonnes. The products can be applied in various industries, including automobile production.
Danieli has been cooperating with Belarusian Steel Works since the latter’s establishment. In 1982 it won a contract to supply equipment for the BMZ. During the construction of the second and third stages of the plant in 1987 and 1991, Danieli was also a major supplier of equipment for the BMZ metalware shops.
