A North East & Yorkshire Section event
About The Event
TATA Steel and Liberty Steel Pipe Mill Tour

A rare opportunity to visit both the TATA Steel and Liberty Steel Pipe Mills in Hartlepool, where steel, in the form of coils or plate, is turned into pressure pipe for the energy industry and structural steel for the construction sector.

The tour of the two mills provides an opportunity to see first-hand two very different types of steel pipe and structural steel production with the TATA mill process manufacturing up to 20” diameter using HFI (High Frequency Induction) Welding and the Liberty Mill up to 42” diameter using SAW (Submerged Arc Welding).

Both mills have recently celebrated their 50th anniversary of steel production and there are not many of these type of mills still in operation in the UK.
