TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY ORDERS PCI TECHNOLOGY TO ENHANCE BLAST FURNACE IRON MAKING PERFORMANCE

TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY orders PCI Technology to enhance Blast Furnace Iron Making Performance

Luxembourg and Ostrava, 17 April 2012. Třinecké železárny, a.s. awarded Paul Wurth with orders for engineering and supply of coal grinding, drying and injection plants for the application of PCI (pulverized coal injection) technology to BFs N°4 and N°6 located in Třinec, Czech Republic.

Paul Wurth’s scope of supply comprises all key components including coal grinding mill, hot gas generator and the injection plants with dynamic distribution of the pulverized coal as well as the complete control and automation systems. The new technology will be applied to the two 8.2 meters-hearth furnaces which today are making up TZ’s entire ironmaking of more than 2 million tons per year. The installations are designed for specific injection rates of up to 150 kg pulverized coal per ton of hot metal.

Together with the proven and reliable technology coming with an attractive value-for-money ratio, the customer appreciates Paul Wurth’s competence in BF ironmaking technology support offered together with the plant.

Installation of the PCI plant is one of the most important investments for TZ in the past years and is believed to reduce the BF operating costs and, more importantly, eradicate the need for further coke import.

Commissioning and start-up of the facilities are scheduled for November / December 2013.
