The Second International seminar “ Metallurgical mini-mills and electric furnace steelmaking” is going to happen on 29 Marth 2017 in Moscow.
In the exhibition hall of the Congress Park at Radisson Royal Hotel, will be presented the stands of the companies from different countries. Currently participation confirmed delegates and representatives of organizations from USA, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, France, Hungary, Turkey, Sweden, China, Norway, Spain, Kazakhstan, Belarus etc.
Aims of the Conference
- By the example of the global experience to show the principles of the success of mini-mills.
- To reveal the reasons why no mini-mills within the Western meaning appeared in CIS despite multiple attempts.
The conference is to help potential investors to avoid the typical mistakes, and existing mills—to improve.
- private investors, municipalities—those who are planning building of mini-mills
- excutives and specialists of metallurgical mills
- representatives of engineering organizations
- suppliers of metallurgical equipment
- raw materials suppliers
The speakers and experts are the specialists having the experience of mini-mills constraction, organization and managing the assets of big metallurgical holdings in Russia and the world.
Topics of the Presentations
- Key trends of a global metallurgy
- The reasons for mini-mills appearance in the world
- Production cost
- Production of the management at mini-mills
- The experience of mini-mills construction in CIS
- The role of manufacturing management
- Leading equipment suppliers for mini-mills
- Technologies and innovations
- Project funding. Risks and management
One of the main points—prime cost of the production in the Russia. How to reduce it on the working manufactures and how to realize new values while projecting new mills. Among the speakers and experts, there will be manufacturers, strategists and marketologists which have a great amount of experience of controlling the mills and other sorts of manufacture. Also there will be suppliers of equipment: Danieli, SMS, Simens.
There is a strong view that the prime costs at mini-mills will always be higher than that the costs of the full time working mill. However, everything is not so obvious . There was an increase among mini mills an increase in 5-6 times for the last decade. It is the cost of the ore, electricity, gas, railway fares etc. Leading consulting firms such as McKinsey, for several years show that the profitability of metallurgical production is not so high.
Objectively, the mills will always have a high demand and standard prime cost. Average distance of transportation of ore, is about 1000 km, produced metal is about 1500 km, coal 2500 km. This means that 1 ton of released metal from 5000 RUB will be expended for transportation by rail. There are other additional costs in the amount up to 1500 rubles/t, which are traditional producers. Also we should take into account debt and credit load mill, which costs 2561 RUB per 1 ton for leaders.
In this regard, we can sum up: compared to mini-mills, traditional metallurgy suffered and additional costs in the amount of 5500-8000 RUB/t.
