Fives was selected for two strategical contracts to design and supply reheating furnaces to Chinese steelmakers, both with very strict requirements on energy consumption and NOx emissions.
The first project covers an ultra-low NOx emission furnace to reheat long products, such as stainless steel bars, coils or wires for Yantai Walsin Stainless Steel. The advanced technology offered by Fives – Stein Reheating WBF, a walking beam furnace, will completely satisfy the client’s requirements. The high standard furnace will have a capacity of 85 tons per hour and will be equipped with the latest generation of AdvanTek® burners, designed in France. The AdvanTek® burners will guarantee energy efficiency and ultra-low NOx emissions.
The second contract was signed with HBIS SHISTEEL for two reheating furnaces, each with a production capacity of 130 tons per hour. The ultimate choice was Stein Digit@l Furnace® due to its green performance. HBIS SHISTEEL set up new standards for cleaner, more flexible and more efficient steelmaking in China.
The scope of both projects on EPC basis includes engineering, equipment supply, erection, and commissioning, which will be completely executed by Fives Stein Metallurgical Technology.
