Primetals Technologies to supply automation and electrics for new blast furnace at EVRAZ NTMK


The Russian steel producer, EVRAZ Nizhniy Tagil Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ NTMK), has awarded

Primetals Technologies an order to supply the automation, electrical equipment and instrumentation for

the new blast furnace #7. The basic automation (level 1) and the process optimization (level 2) will be

installed as a virtualized automation system on central, redundant servers, which will drastically reduce

service costs, especially those for future upgrades. The new process automation will also optimize the

coke consumption. The order is worth several million euros and the new blast furnace is scheduled to be

commissioned at the end of 2017.
