Danieli successfully started up one of the largest EAFs in the world – 420-metric-ton twin-electrode DC EAF – at Tokyo Steel’s Tahara plant. In addition to the furnace and charge system, Danieli’s scope included all additional equipment and auxiliary services necessary for annual production of up to 2.6 million metric tons of quality steel. Tokyo Steel will also operate a corresponding-size ladle furnace and twin vacuum system for the production of low- and ultra-low-carbon and Al-killed steel grades.
