Siemens to supply vacuum decarburization plant for foundry in Austria

The voestalpine Giesserei Linz GmbH, part of the Steel Division of the listed voestalpine corporation, ordered a 50-ton vacuum oxygen decarburization (VOD) plant with mechanical vacuum pumps from Siemens VAI Metals Technologies. The Austrian company is thus supplementing its facilities for secondary metallurgical processing of cast steels for demanding applications in the energy industry and in the machine-building industry. The new vacuum decarburization plant is expected to be operational from the end of the calendar year.
