Scana Steel Stavanger’s customers are users of special steel and high alloy steel with stringent requirements for design and documentation. These are mainly found in the oil and gas, marine, energy, mining and general mechanical industries.
Scana Steel Stavanger was founded in 1910 and has produced steel since 1913. The business is located at Jørpeland, near Stavanger, Norway. The company’s business concept was based on the idea of remelting scrap steel from the local cannery industry and ship scrapping. Scana Industrier bought the company in 1991.
Markets and customers
Scana Steel Stavanger operates in a global market, but the majority of our customers are in Scandinavia and northern Europe. The company competes in the market of high alloy forged components and complex, cast, special components. Scana Steel Stavanger AS is, in addition to Scana Leshan in China, the only company in Scana with a foundry.
In 2010, Scana Steel Stavanger had an export share of 65 %, with the main export going to the UK, Sweden and Germany. There is tough competition in the market. Scana’s competitive edge is that we are a relatively small player able to produce small series, where quality and delivery times are vital. Our deliveries are often special products, custom made to meet the client’s needs.
In 2010, the company secured its first steel delivery contract to the down-hole product “Liner hanger”. With extreme demands for corrosion and mechanical properties, this is a product that fits the company’s strategy of higher alloy and processing degrees in products.
Furthermore, Scana Steel Stavanger AS has in 2010 secured large contracts in the mining industry. The contract with LKAB in Sweden to adjust the crushing level at the site in Kiruna was important. These deliveries are due in 2011.
Aker Solutions has awarded the company several large orders for delivering anchor handling equipment, where the end customer is, among others, Petrobras in Brazil. Scana Steel Stavanger AS also landed contracts for integrals with Jack & St. Malo at the end of 2010, to be delivered spring and summer 2011.
ELG Carrs in the UK tripled the order volume of Scana Steel Stavanger AS from 2009 to 2010 of forged products of the material quality Super Duplex.
For Scana Steel Stavanger AS, 2010 started off with 7 weak months, followed by 5 months of higher order intake and activity. The order intake in 2010 was 40 % higher than in 2009. The company views 2011 with optimism and a higher predictability in the market.
