Primetals Technologies to supply new process optimization for all four BOF converters of EVRAZ NTMK in Russia

In July 2020, EVRAZ NTMK, a Russian steel producer, awarded Primetals Technologies an order to upgrade process optimization of the four BOF converters in its Nizhnij Tagil plant in Russia. The intelligent software from Primetals Technologies will replace the existing Level 2. Currently, the converter operators frequently have to intervene manually. The new process optimization solution offers dynamic, physical models with greater computational accuracy, and will allow improved converter operation, providing optimal converter production control across all shifts. The standardized mode of operation is expected to be accompanied by a reduction in the quantities of additives used. The contract negotiations and initial project meetings were held by video conference. Primetals Technologies experts are scheduled to commission the plants in Linz, Austria, and Yekaterinburg, Russia, in the summer of 2021. Primetals Technologies will also provide additional support to EVRAZ NTMK for the adaptation of the Level 1 system.
