Trace heating projects
as turnkey deliveries


Safety is key
in challenging working conditions

 What's particularly good about Caverion is that they deliver trace heating as a complete package, which also includes planning and documentation.

  • SSAB’s plant in Raahe contains several mills and two blast furnaces where pig iron is produced for further processing. The area also features a coking plant, a power plant and its own port.
  • The conditions at the Raahe mill are challenging and require a high level of safety expertise from the entire installation and maintenance staff.
  • The SSAB Raahe plant needed a partner who can deliver trace heating projects as a turnkey delivery, from design to installation and documentation.

  • Caverion has had an electrical maintenance contract at SSAB's Raahe factory for years. In addition, the Raahe factory constantly employs Caverion's electrical installers for maintenance and installation work.
  • We have plenty of experience in the planning, implementation and long-term development of maintenance and trace heating projects.
  • Another benefit of the long-term partnership is that Caverion's installers know the Raahe mill thoroughly, enabling them to take care of completing even longer projects.
  • We also take care of the appropriate documentation for the mill's maintenance system, making sure that the information flows between the various parties.
