Primetals Technologies to replace two LD converters in Dąbrowa Górnicza for ArcelorMittal Poland

Print

ArcelorMittal Poland S.A. has given Primetals Technologies an order to replace LD (BOF) converters #1

and #3 in its Dąbrowa Górnicza steel works. The new converters will have a tapping weight of 325 metric

tons and the project will be executed on a turnkey basis. The converters will be suspended by the

maintenance-free Vaicon Link 2.0. This suspension system not only minimizes the stresses caused by

thermal deformations, but also has a long service life. Converter #1 is scheduled to be brought into

operation at the end of 2016, and converter #3 six months later, depending on when the option is

exercised.
