As a result, the start of a new facility for production of pig iron YMP will increase by 1.2 million tons per year and will reach more than 3 million tons per year in the whole domain shop. Commissioning of the new BF-3 carried out in the framework of technological development strategy metallurgical enterprises of Metinvest. The investment amounted to more than $ 220 million
The new DP-3 is the largest object of the plant and is significantly different from the other two blast furnaces YMP. On the new blast furnace for the first time in the metallurgy of Ukraine introduced a number of the most advanced technology and applies the latest control systems. All innovations are aimed at improving the efficiency of the unit and the reduction of production costs. Thus, the DP-3 installed beskonusnoe boot device by "Paul Wurth" (Luxembourg), which reduces coke consumption by 5% and increase productivity as much kiln. In order to extend the life of the unit, use a new scheme refractory lining (lining) of blast furnace hearth. The technology will increase the lining life four times (up to 15 years without repair horn).
It should also be noted low emissions of a new blast furnace, about 40% of emissions of other furnaces.
Environmental reliability of the DP-3 system provides suction and blast furnace gas. For the first time in Ukraine blast furnace is equipped with a gas purification "Paul Wurth ‘(Luxembourg), which will allow the company to positively solve the issues of economic and environmental benefits. Installation allows you to not only clean the top gas of contaminants by 99.9%, but use it in the future as fuel in the production units of the enterprise instead of natural gas.
Management and control of technological processes and mechanisms of PD-3 is being implemented with the help of modern process control system of the company «Siemens VAI» (Austria). It is a new integrated network management, based on the information of more than 5 thousand benchmarks.
Also in the control zone control system entered a crucial energy department of the enterprise — teploenergotsentral-parovozduhoduvnaya station (TPS-PVA), modernization is conducted in the framework of the complex DP-3. Productive assets CHP-SA joined the turbocompressor unit (HPT number 6) production «CKD Nove Energo» (Czech Republic) and water recycling unit with two fan-cooling towers and German pumping equipment. Radical renewal energy sector will ensure a steady supply of blast furnace blast on YMP.
"Modern technologies and equipment that are embedded in our facility in the past five years show a steady trend of development of the plant — said General Director Alexander Podkorytov YMP. — Along with the improvement of the production base and we are forming a new human resources, focusing on young people. For example, 90% of the staff of the new complex DP-3 — are young professionals who have a competitive selection for work with unique equipment. More than 120 people have been trained by the leading steel plants in Russia and Europe. "
Metinvest — a vertically integrated mining group of companies managing assets in every link of the production chain from the extraction of iron ore and coal and coke to manufacture semi-finished and finished products of steel, Pipe and rolls, as well as in other products with high added value. The group consists of mining and metallurgical enterprises in Ukraine, Europe and the U.S., and has a sales network covering all key global markets. The major shareholders of Metinvest are SCM Group (71.25%) and Smart-Holding (23.75%), jointly control the company.
