Algoma Steel Furnace Project Meets Construction Milestone

Construction of Algoma Steel’s Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF) is changing the Sault Ste. Marie skyline.

The steelmaker announced this week that the last of four crane girders have been installed, officially connecting the EAF main building. Construction began at both ends of the building. The crane girders joins it in the middle.

The company said in a social media post that each girder, made from Algoma plate, measures 100 feet long, 16 feet deep and weighs 120 tons. These components arrived by tug and barge last summer. Fabrication was done off-site by Warren Fabricating and Machining and SIS Manufacturing.
