Japan to sell GO electrical steel to China

Japan, Tokyo: A purchasing team of a Chinese leading transformer manufacturer is expected to visit Japanese steel making companies Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. and JFE Steel, according to Steel Guru.

Due to a lack of high-grade grain oriented (GO) sheets in China, the purpose of the visit is to negotiate the purchase of GO electrical steel sheets directly from Japanese steel mills, reports Steel Guru.

The name of the Chinese company has not been revealed.

The Chinese Government plans to construct three HVDC feeder lines a year from now on, which will create a demand for a lot of transformers. It is estimated that a construction of three feeder lines will require 45 to 60 tons of high-grade GO sheets.
