Paul Wurth S.A., Luxembourg

Successful completion of turn-key project in Germany

In August 2013, Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH (SZFG), Germany, had awarded the Paul Wurth Group with a turn-key order for the construction of a pulverised coal injection (PCI) plant for Blast Furnaces ‘A’ and ‘B’ at their Salzgitter integrated steel plant. As SZFG announced already on May 4th, the plant has started operation in spring 2015 and helps now to reduce the cost of ironmaking operations. The plant features two coal grinding and drying plants of 50 t/h capacity each. The injection plants are designed to reach a capacity of 200 kg of pulverised coal per ton of hot metal. With the first coal having been injected into the BF ‘B’ on March 23rd and the readiness for operation achieved on April 2nd, 2015, the respective contractual milestones have been accomplished.
