Major order from Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH

Another milestone in the company history of Donges SteelTec GmbH.


Structural engineering division receives major order from Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH for the construction of a new 63-metre-high production hall. The contract includes the delivery and erection of the primary as well as the secondary steel structure including the building envelope with doors and gates. Drainage, lightning protection and SHEVS are also part of the contract.

Donges SteelTec is preparing the shop drawings and the erection planning. It is planned to erect the 8500 tonne steel structure using conventional lifting assembly. Erection is scheduled to start in mid-2023.

The 183 m long, 46 m wide and 63 m high hall will be equipped over its entire length with a crane runway for two bridge cranes with a load capacity of 500 tonnes each. Due to the partially large distances between the columns, the crane runway girders are designed as open welded profiles with an overall height of 4500 mm.

The entire project is being realised as a joint venture with the company GP Hoch- und Ingenieurbau GmbH, Hanover.

“We are very proud to have been awarded the contract for this forward-looking project. In this new hall construction, we can perfectly combine our know-how and experience from structural steel engineering as well as bridge construction,” says Dr Wolf Cornelius, Managing Director of Donges SteelTec GmbH.
