The future of steelmaking explained

How are steelmakers approaching the complex subjects of digital manufacturing and Industry 4.0? What are the benefits, where are the challenges, and where does success lie? Join us at the Future Steel Forum in Stockholm, June 2024, as we look to uncover the answers by listening to the 'smart manufacturers' themselves.

Now in it’s 7th edition, the Forum is firmly established as THE conference to attend in Europe for senior steel executives wanting to embrace the benefits of smart manufacturing, build a roadmap for decarbonisation, and to get a comprehensive update on the future direction of industrial processes.

New to Future Steel Forum 2024

An invitation to visit Ovako’s Hofors steel mill

High-tech steel solutions for a sustainable future

Ovako is a leading European manufacturer of engineering steel for customers in the bearing, transportation and manufacturing industries. The Scandivanian steelmaker’s key focus in recent years has been to make its steelmaking operations more sustainable and in 2022, it went carbon neutral in all operations. But that is only the start, and Ovako invites delegates from the 2024 Future Steel Forum to tour its hub at Hofors on Monday 17th June 2024 (ahead of the conference on 18/19 June in Stockholm) to see how the company is continuing its journey towards steel production without CO2 emissions.

The highlight of the tour will be the world's first fossil-free hydrogen plant for heating steel before rolling. Here Ovako is producing hydrogen by electrolysis of water, enabling the company to almost eliminate carbon emissions at this production stage. The excess hydrogen will also provide the energy for transportation vehicles powered by fuel cells.

Delegates will also be able to see Ovako’s main processes such as forging and ring rolling. While at the company’s dedicated visitor centre they will experience a virtual 3-D presentation of steel production at Ovako’s other plants.

Places on this plant tour will be limited so book early to avoid disappointment!
