Bluescope boosts Indonesian facility
BlueScope Steel said it would complete construction of its second metallic coating line, with in-line painting capability, at its plant in Cilegon, Indonesia.
BlueScope restarts the construction of the second metallic coating and painting facility and expects the commission of new facility around mid 2011. The Cilegon facility's existing facility allows for 100,000 tons per annum of metallic coated and 40,000 tons per annum of painted steel production.
The new line will produce thin gauge coil for residential construction applications. The combined capacity will then increase to 265,000 tons per annum of metallic coated and 160,000 tons per annum of painted steel.
Capital of US$86 million has been spent on the project so far. The estimated cost to complete the project is a further US$40 million.
