The first rollings of a new steel sheet pile section are always a challenge for a mill, especially after a revamp. ArcelorMittal’s rolling mill in Rodange, Luxembourg, which underwent a major revamp end of 2007, started his production of special sections a couple of months ago, and in parallel the rolling tests of steel sheet piles. It achieved the first industrial rolling of the new PU 7R this Monday 17th of March 2008. This milestone sets the beginning of a new era for this mill. Besides, the next sheet pile shape in line, the PU 10R, is already expected for May 2008.
In a first step, the PU 7R and its rolled up section will be available in steel grades up to S 355 GP. You can find all the characteristics of these new sections either in our dedicated flyer ‘PU-R sections’ or in our brand new ‘General Catalogue 2008’.

By the way, the first project that will utilize the new PU 7R is already waiting for the sheets. More details in a couple of weeks...
