In May 2016, SSAB established a new business unit, SSAB Services, to increase our focus on services and solutions for both aftermarket and equipment manufacturers. SSAB Services is responsible for SSAB’s extended global service offering and includes the Hardox Wearparts and SSAB Shape concepts.
With SSAB Weathering and COR-TEN®, it is now possible to create the impression of rusted steel without sacrificing modern quality. This weathering steel, produced by SSAB, is gaining popularity around the world thanks to its effective surface patina. SSAB is the only licensed COR-TEN® manufacturer in Europe.
During the planned maintenance outage at SSAB Special Steels in Oxelösund in the beginning of December, ABB replaced the control system for the power supply of the rolling mill. During the planned restart, a transformer broke down, as earlier communicated. After repair, during the restart of the powertrain of the rolling mill, there was another breakdown of one out of six similar transformers.
