What can you expect at one of their exciting tours? Here is a quick snapshot!
After a quick safety briefing at the Visitor Centre, you will be kitted out in safety gear (PPE) before we board the tour bus to begin a truly sensory‘ steelmaking’ experience. As the tour bus snakes around the Port Kembla Steelworks site, you will spot everything from monster machinery, giant buildings, locomotives and huge stockpiles of raw materials.
Time to turn up the heat as we climb the stairs to visit the colossal Basic Oxygen Steelmaking (BOS) plant and the continuous slab caster to get the best vantage point of steel production – a truly unique and sensory experience.
In the tour’s final stage, we visit the Hot Strip Mill, where steel slabs are reheated and rolled into coils in a noisy, action-packed process.
