International technology Group ANDRITZ received an order from Bahru Stainless SHN BHD in Malaysia, a joint venture between Acerinox S.

Production is scheduled to start by the end of 2010.

The order comprises a continuous annealing and pickling line for hot-rolled and cold-rolled stainless steel strip, a skin pass mill, and a mixed acid regeneration plant (Pyromars). With a capacity of approximately 540,000 tons per year, the plant will process strip in the thickness range from 0.7-10 mm and up to 1,600 mm wide.
