Tenova Mining & Minerals’ furnace specialist Tenova Pyromet has been awarded a significant contract by South Korea’s KCC Engineering & Construction (KCC) to build a mineral wool facility. Consisting of two electric arc furnaces, the new project will modernize KCC’s mineral wool production facility to reduce emissions and increase efficiency. The contract is due to be completed in mid-2016.
Tenova Pyromet will provide its latest furnace technology, developed over many years, ensuring that KCC owns and operates a world-class facility. The electrode system has been proven in many applications, and will provide benefits to KCC in functionality and performance. The scope of work includes design, supply, supervision and process and equipment guarantees for the complete furnaces, the power supply and automation systems.
“This order has underpinned and affirms Tenova Pyromet’s position as an international first choice supplier of mineral wool furnaces. The order also demonstrates that Tenova Pyromet is the ideal partner for specialized smelter projects,” says Tenova Pyromet’s managing director Chris Oertel. “This is a proud addition to Tenova Pyromet’s track record in mineral wool projects, which includes a major facility recently executed successfully in the USA.”
