Productos Especializados de Acero (PEASA) has contracted Fives to design and supply a complete OTO tube mill line for its new Tubo Conduit plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

The plant will produce electrical mechanical tubing (EMT) and will have a production capacity of 20kt/yr.

Fives, a long-term partner of PEASA, has already designed, manufactured and supplied a complete OTO tube mill line to the company in August this year, equipped with an in-line tube galvanising system 'to achieve a long-lasting corrosive reduction that is essential for the production of conduit tubes.

The new plant is scheduled for a start-up in early 2019.
