Billet Caster Machine and Ladle Metallurgy Furnace Installation

The Project Atom scope was to install client supplied equipment. An assembly stage was planned to be completed away from the client’s operational plant, reducing hazard exposure and improving productivity. This approach was highly commended by our client. IMG had a difficult working environment in the middle of a fully operational steel-making plant (brown-field) where complex lifts were required to install heavy, sensitive equipment at height and under gantry crane beams.


Project timeline was accelerated, resulting in a large installation resource required. The project was completed to a high standard, commendations received from the client’s representatives. Senior management support on the project was visible, resulting in an improved project outcome.
