ArcelorMittal Temirtau awards Danieli with ironmaking and steelmaking projects
by David Fleschen
ArcelorMittal Temirtau again has chosen Danieli Corus to implement new ironmaking and steelmaking projects at the Temirtau steel plant in Kazakhstan.
Hot blast stoves #8 and #10 serving blast furnace #3 will be revamped. The project includes a conversion from a hemispherical to a mushroom-dome design, the installation of a ceramic burner and the application of the proven Danieli Corus design featuring expansion allowance in the refractory construction. Hot blast stove #9 also is being revamped by Danieli Corus.
Furthermore, after the commissioning of the new, 300-t converter #3 at Temirtau, ArcelorMittal ordered the replacement of the other two 300-t converters. Like for converter #3, these vessels will be equipped with a maintenance–free suspension system based on vertical and horizontal, patented Daniella elements.
