Nippon Steel Orders Tenova’s Consteel® EAF
In a statement, Tenova said the furnace, to be installed at the steelmaker’s Hirohata Works, will be Nippon’s first Consteel furnace.
The furnace is to enter service in the first half of fiscal 2022.
“With this new installation, Hirohata plant will save about 400,000 tons per year of CO2 emissions,” said Mario Marcozzi, Tenova sales director for electric arc & ladle furnaces. “Moreover, this project consolidates Tenova presence in the important Asian market.”
