Wormleysburg-based Harsco Corp. this week announced three multiyear contracts in Europe, the Middle East and South America, and new industrial and commercial sector orders in Europe, totaling more than $170 million collectively.
The global industrial services and engineered products company on Monday said its metals and minerals division will provide on-site steel mill services for new customers in Bahrain, Sweden and Chile. Those multiyear contracts total more than $135 million, the company said in a news release.
Built by the United Steel Co., the mill in northeastern Bahrain will be the Gulf Region's first fully integrated producer of medium and heavy beams and structural steel sections, Harsco said. It also will be the first mill in Bahrain.
Harsco has a five-year contract to service the mill's anticipated production levels of close to 1 million ton-per-year.
In Sweden, the Cumberland County company over a 10-year period will provide a range of scrap management services at an SSAB plant in Oxelosund , the company said. SSAB is the largest Nordic manufacturer of heavy steel plate.
The contract in Chile is for six years and includes slag processing, metal recovery and the sale of slag aggregates at the Gerdau AZA steelworks, Harsco said. The facility produces steel products for the construction sector and other markets.
On Wednesday, the company announced more than $35 million in new revenue in Europe through Harsco Infrastructure.
Harsco received an extension and expansion of its on-site insulation maintenance services contract with the BASF Group chemical complex in Antwerp, Belgium. The company said it will support BASF's operations with round-the-clock thermal and acoustic insulation installation, modification and repair services throughout the complex.
Harsco also won new orders to support three large-scale requirements in the shipyard maintenance and commercial construction sectors.
In addition, the company received a new order to begin work on the second phase of a major construction project in France, the Les Terrasses du Port retail complex in Marseille.
Harsco provides products and services to the metals production, construction, railway and energy industries. It trades its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol HSC.
