Assessment of scenarios to improve the production rate of pelletizing area units at OEMK plant named after A.A. Ugarov

In the realm of sci-tech services rendered by TOREX company at OEMK steel plant, a few basic scenarios are envisaged to ramp up a production rate by 600 thousand tonnes of fired pellets per annum. In essence, the proposed technical solutions will lead to further boosting of capacity up to 900 thousand tonnes of oxidized pellets to be consumed by metallization plants No 3 and 4 previously revamped. Minimized OPEX goes as an extra accomplishment. In parallel, improvement of the automatic process control system is ongoing as per TOREX technical specification. As of now, revamping project has reached the stage of process equipment erection, including its biggest unit – drum pelletizer (110 tonnes). In total, over 35 items of mechanisms and equipment are about to be mounted. Start up and commissioning of the technological complex is scheduled for 4th quarter of 2022 with over 2 billion rubles invested by Metalloinvest Group of Companies.
