Tenova, a Techint Group company specialized in innovative solutions for the metals and mining industries, was awarded a contract for the supply of a Consteel® EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) for Nippon Steel Corporation. This new Consteel® EAF is the first one for the Nippon Steel Group in Japan – and it will be installed at their Hirohata works. Production is targeted to start in H1 of 2022 financial year.
Tenova’s Consteel® EAF offers high-quality standards as well as an environmentally friendly approach to steel production compared to the other EAF technology. Tenova’s exclusive Consteel® technology is, in fact, the only fully proven industrial process that continuously heats and feeds metallic charge into the EAF, while simultaneously keeping gaseous emissions under control.
