The oxygen steelmaking plant at Vizag Steel in Visakhapatnam, India, is growing on schedule with an annual production of 6.4 million t of liquid steel. Already, the first two of the three planned BOF converters are in operation. The third is due for commissioning in 2016.
Included in our scope of supply are the engineering and manufacturing of core components for three new 150-t converter vessels with tilt drives, matching oxygen lances, and bottom stirring equipment, plus modernization of the primary as well as the secondary dedusting systems. What's striking about the gas cleaning system is its design as a wet dust-collection facility complete with Venturi scrubber.
