RHI Wins Contract with Voestalpine Donawitz
When it was put out for international tender again, RHI was once again awarded the contract. In the next three years, RHI will supply roughly 23 000 t of refractory materials (bricks, mixes) for the lining of pig iron and steel casting ladles, tundishes as well as ladle slide gates, which are required for the production of approx. 4,5 Mt of crude steel at Voestalpine Donawitz. This corresponds to a contract volume of roughly EUR 24 million. Moreover, RHI will be in charge of the installation and removal of the products in a 24-hour on-site service and of quality assurance. RHI will also supply and maintain the machines required for this purpose. RHI employs roughly 7800 people at 32 production sites and approx. 70 sales offices, and realized revenues of EUR 850,9 million in the first half of 2011 (10/2011).
