The Erdemir CGL#2 project was successfully completed after several years of extensive cooperation between Erdemir‘s production, maintenance and quality teams, Erdemir Engineering Management & Consulting Services Inc. and the Consortium* in charge of the plant building led by Clecim.

The last project stage has been dedicated to actively support the production technical qualification to reach automotive certifications for car exposed panels.

This unpreceded result of multiple carmaker qualifications is a breakthrough in Turkish market, where steel for exposed panels was mostly imported.
This outcome was achieved thanks to the sustained and cooperative work of all parties, Clecim and its partners’ equipment performances, and the know-how advisory services led by the consortium expert team during the carmaker’s certification process.

Raising up the quality control principles, optimizing the process specifics, securing of maintenance systematics, setting up the equipment and recipes preparation for the high value-added production campaigns, were some of the key drivers to bring the plant to the expected successful level.
 (*) Consortium composed of the companies Clecim (lead, equipment and overall process), ANDRITZ Selas (Furnace), Primetals Technologies (E&A), FOEN (Air Knifes), and PartnerTeknik (Construction erection works, supply and erection of balance of plant equipment).
