A prominent Iraqi-based company, has formally entered into a contractual agreement with *Danieli* to spearhead the development of a state-of-the-art rolling mill facility dedicated to rebar production. The envisaged plant, boasting a production capacity of 500,000 tons per year, is set to leverage Danieli’s advanced high-speed rolling technology to manufacture premium-quality rebar within the diameter range of 10 to 40 mm.
The strategic location for this venture is the industrial precinct of Al-Hilla, situated to the south of Baghdad. It is anticipated that the high-speed mill will commence its operations in the latter part of the third quarter of 2025, marking a significant milestone for both Muhaj Baghdad and Danieli.
According to details provided by Danieli, the cutting-edge rolling mill will be equipped with a six-pass, fast-finishing block, complemented by a combination of 12 horizontal-vertical housingless stands. This configuration ensures optimal output efficiency. The inclusion of Danieli Morgårdshammar bar guidance systems and multidrive technology further underscores the mill’s capability to roll rebar at high speeds, maintain tight tolerances, and achieve a superior level of surface finish.
Beyond the provision of equipment, Danieli is committed to delivering comprehensive services encompassing plant start-up, installation, and training advisory support. The incorporation of Danieli Automation L1 automation systems will further enhance the operational efficiency of the new facility.
