Primetals Technologies to engineer continuous caster and secondary metallurgy facilities for MMKI
|•||Annual production capacity to increase to four million metric tons of slabs|
|•||Project includes ladle furnace, alloying station and dedusting system|
|•||Expanded product portfolio|
|•||Cross-section heat-pacing solution to coordinate steel production with casting operation|
|•||Reduction of dust content in cleaned gas|
Primetals Technologies has received an order from Ukrainian steel producer “Iljitsch” Metallurgical Combinate in Mariupol (MMKI) to engineer a continuous slab caster, a twin ladle furnace with an alloying station, and the associated dedusting system. The two-strand caster CC4 will be designed to produce 2.5 million metric tons of slabs per annum. This will increase MMKI’s annual production capacity to around four million metric tons, as well as enhancing and expanding its product portfolio to include, for example, HC, UHC and ULC steels. A level 3 heat-pacing solution will coordinate the steel production with the casting operation.
