Braidy Industries, Inc. has selected Kiewit as the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractor for Braidy Atlas, its greenfield aluminium mill in Ashland, Kentucky. SMS Group and Ebner Industrieofenbau were selected as equipment and furnace providers, respectively.
This partnership represents a major step forward in the construction of Braidy Industries’ low-cost, innovative rolling mill, Braidy Atlas. With a dedicated management team alongside efficient onsite staff, the mill is on schedule for first production in 2020. Braidy Industries and Kiewit reached an agreement to negotiate a full turnkey EPC contract reflecting Kiewit’s capabilities as one of the largest construction and engineering organizations in North America. The company offers services in a variety of markets, including transportation; oil, gas and chemical; power and water/wastewater.
To be built with an investment of around USD1.3 billion, the aluminium cold rolling mill will be the first new mill of its kind in the US in more than 30 years. The new mill will focus on Series 5000, 6000 and 7000 aluminium sheet and plate products.
