Geocache Description:

First commercial Bessemer converter in the world


Modern steel production started on a commercial scale here in Edsken. The owner and founder of Sandvikens Jerverk AB, now part of Sandvik AB, Göran Fredrik Göransson, bought a license to use Henry Bessemer's patent for blowing oxygen into molten iron and converting it to steel. These remains have a greater significance than can be first imagined.


Modern stålframställning började på kommersiell skala här i Edsken. Ägaren och grundaren av Sandvikens Jerverk AB, nu en del av Sandvik AB, Göran Fredrik Göransson, köpte en licens för att använda Henry Bessemers patent för att blåsa syre genom flytande järn och konverterar det till stål. Dessa rester har en större signifikans än vad som kan först tros.
