Emirates Steel’s $1.6bn Heavy Sections Mill, which started production in early 2012, is diversifying its product range by developing structural steel with enhanced mechanical properties that are often specified in offshore oil, gas and petrochemical projects.

The 15-year old GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) steelmaker has the capacity to produce one million tonnes of structural steel per year and has recently started to ramp up production.

The mill currently produces a wide range of products from medium light sections to heavy jumbo sections with sizes from approximately 200 to 1000mm in depth.
