Success Story

Turning Up The Heat For A Blast Furnace Project In Icy Russian Winter

Blast Furnace spraycast refractory project

Russia’s NTMK Nizshnly Tagil, part of the global Evraz Group, decided to schedule Greenfield construction for a new blast furnace in the deep freeze of icy winter in the Ural Federal District. The Calderys team needed to find a way to help the customer build the stack for NTMK’s BF-7 on time and within budget. With Calderys expertise and support, NTMK’s new blast furnace is now continuously producing 7000 tonnes of high-vanadium iron - one of only two mills in the world to do so.

Learn how Calderys helped the customer achieve their 3 crucial project goals:

  • Running the Greenfield BF at full production before the end of winter
  • Building the Greenfield BF within strict budget and time constraints
  • Optimising human performance and equipment during the installation
