Construction Starts on the World's Most Advanced Special Steel Plant

voestalpine hosted a groundbreaking ceremony and press conference to benchmark work beginning on the first high-tech steel plant being built in Europe in over 40 years.

From 2021 onwards, each year the fully digitalised plant, based in Kapfenberg, Austria will produce around 205,000 tons of sophisticated high-performance steels, especially for the international aviation and automotive industries as well as for the oil & gas sector, while at the same time securing more than 3,000 highly skilled jobs in the region over the long term. 

Preparations for the major project with an investment volume of up to EUR 350 million are already fully underway: the construction site is currently being prepared, with work focusing on energy supply and logistics infrastructure.
