SMS partners with H2 Green Steel

The Swedish Energy Agency has supported the early phases of the considerable engineering efforts that have been significant in finalizing this contract.

H2 Green Steel has selected SMS group to supply process technology for its green steel plant in Northern Sweden.

In this partnership, it will deliver process equipment from the melt shop down to the finished steel products. It will also contribute with its competence and experience to H2 Green Steel’s large-scale steel plant in Boden, the first of its kind powered by green hydrogen.

SMS group will provide the EAF-based melt shop, casting and hot rolling plant, and an advanced cold rolling and processing complex to produce a broad product mix, including advanced high-strength steel and automotive steel grades.

The total order volume for the SMS group exceeds €1 billion. It includes earlier announced orders awarded to SMS group’s wholly-owned company Paul Wurth and its consortium partner Midrex.

Burkhard Dahmen, CEO of SMS group, said, “Hydrogen-based green steel is the future of primary steelmaking, and we are all working full speed ahead to deliver the key technologies to start a new era of steelmaking.”

Maria Persson Gulda, H2 Green Steel’s CTO, said, “We have jointly designed the plant to make a significant CO2 reduction throughout the whole steel plant in a way that will set us apart from others in the market.”
