JSW Steel (USA) Inc. selected Tenova to supply melt-shop technology for its melt-and-manufacture contiguous plate and pipe facility in Baytown, Texas. The greenfield melting facility will include a Consteel Evolution EAF, two ladle metallurgy furnaces and a twin vacuum tank degasser for the production of high-quality steel slabs that will feed the new “plate mill of the future.”

Tenova will also design and supply the entire melt-shop material-handling system for the storage and handling of fluxes and ferroalloys as well as DRI and HBI.

As part of this project, Tenova will provide JSW Steel (USA) Inc. with two independent bag houses, one for the hot gases and one for the cold gases to comply with low-pollution limits. This technology platform will allow incredibly low NOx and VOC emissions on a per ton of steel basis.
