Hybar’s new rebar mill is set to be outfitted with 16 cranes of various capacities, according to a news release from Finnish crane manufacturer, Konecranes.
The recently formed scrap metal recycling and steel producer is currently constructing its first high-yielding rebar mill in Osceola, Ark. The mill is expected to produce about 630,000 tons of rebar per year.
The cranes will possess special technology to meet Hybar’s needs, according to the release.
Two shipping cranes have special magnets for handling spooled rebar coils and long flat bundles. The ladle/charge cranes possess cabins with maximum visibility, ensuring the safest working conditions for the operator, the release said.
“The team at Konecranes understands the complexities of moving steel,” Hybar’s CFO Ari Levy said in the release. “They also share our dedication to operational efficiency, environmental stewardship and, above all else, safety.”
Additional equipment includes a rolling mill crane, ladle/tundish repair crane, roll shop maintenance cranes, and maintenance jib cranes.
