'We are delighted that Baoxin has turned to ABB for world-class metals processing solutions,' said Dinesh Paliwal, head of ABB's Automation Technologies division. 'We have enjoyed exceptional success in this area over the past few years, and our strong local expertise should help the Baoxin project to become yet another milestone for the stainless steel industry in China.'

ABB will provide equipment and systems to help develop the largest hot and cold annealing and pickling lines in the world, as well as state-of-the-art rolling mills at the Ningbo plant, near Shanghai. ABB will supply specialized technologies for rolling, flatness control and metal conditioning, plus process control products, drives and motors.

ABB in Germany and China will cooperate on the projects, which are planned for completion within two years. The work will support Baoxin's drive to boost its current annual output of 300,000 tons of finished product to 700,000 tons. ABB has already designed, engineered and commissioned a complete annealing and pickling line for another part of the Ningbo facility, as well as providing other specialized equipment and technologies.
