Tenova: New agreement in China for 3 iRecovery® Systems
by David Fleschen
Soon after the Consteel Evolution® commissioning, Tenova contracted for three new iRecovery® systems (intelligent waste heat recovery systems) by Tangshan Zhengfeng Iron & Steel Co., LTD, in Hebei Province, China.
Once again, Tenova has been chosen by the Chinese company for its reliability and experience in this field. The iRecovery® systems will be applied downstream of the new Consteel® Evolution to recover the waste heat and reuse it for the production of steam, which will then be available for the existing power plant.
The latest Chinese government policies demand higher quality processes and technologies to increase productivity and implement environmental sustainable solutions. Consequently, Chinese steelmakers have been paying more and more attention to these topics in order to consolidate their position as technological leaders. Tenova iRecovery® meets these high environmental standards required for production, compared to traditional steelmaking processes.
“The EAF Consteel® iRecovery® configuration represents the worldwide state-of-the- art technology for what concerns electrical steelmaking sector and it will set an ambitious technological reference for Tenova in China and around the world”, stated Cristian Cattalini, Product Line Director, Tenova Metals - Environmental Technologies.
Tenova iRecovery®, with more than twelve references worldwide - four of which are located in China - is considered the best available proven technology in terms of balance/mix between innovation, reliability and sustainability. Over the last three years, Tenova has gained a strong position in China, thanks to its technologies enabling Chinese steelmakers to improve their process towards greener and sustainable solutions.
“We are proud to supply our technologies to Tangshan and to be part of its transition to greener process in steelmaking. During our meetings, we discussed about future co-operation for sustainable solutions and we are ready to continue to be a reliable partner for Tangshan in the path of circular economy”, said Roberto Pancaldi, Tenova Metals CEO.
