Nucor Steel – Ghent

Coming off of the success of the project in Convent, LA, Nucor once again turned to Phoenix to provide the DRI (direct reduced iron) storage structures at their facility in Ghent, KY. This facility required two structures, each with a capacity of 6,000 metric tons of DRI. Although similar in purpose, the design of the Ghent structures required all support members to be bolted in lieu of welded. Phoenix exhibited versatility in the design, layout, and fabrication of these parts, and our erectors fit all members up in the field without issue or need for modification.

Phoenix shop fabricated approximately 1.95 million pounds of steel for these two structures at the Sebree, KY, facility and transported the fabricated materials across northwest Kentucky to Ghent. Phoenix completed the project on time and within budget for this valuable customer.
