The project is to be completed in December this year.

The award is to add hydraulic gap control to the mill and upgrade the mill automation to the latest generation of FATA Hunter’s h-System. The mill electrical drives system and PLC will also be upgraded to replace the existing system, which had become obsolete.

FATA Hunter originally delivered the mill in 1971 and it has continued to operate through today, the modernisation will improve gauge performance and optimise production.
