GP UKRGIPROMEZ Designs for Production Modernization at JSC Krasny Oktyabr Steel Plant, Volgograd

The following Projects are being implemented from GP UKRGIPROMEZ designs:  

  • Construction works aimed at retrofitting of furnace facilities of Rolled Products Treatment Shop and Rolled Sheets Treatment Section have been practically completed by now at the Plant. Currently, erection of process equipment, i.e. up-to-date reheating furnaces and quenching hoods, is coming to the end. Equipment has been supplied to the Plant site by Bosio, Slovenia.


  • Retrofitting and upgrading of steel vacuum degassing facility takes place in EAF Shop No.2, wherein civil and structural activities are near completion. Retrofitting scope includes installation of modern vacuum mechanical pumps (make of Danieli, Italy) instead of out-of-date pumps of steam jet type. This measure will ensure considerable increase of VD efficiency.  


  • Start has been given to implementation of environment protection measure – construction of new dry-type gas cleaning system for arc steelmaking furnace (EAF-200) as part of EAF Shop No.2 revamping. In addition to gas cleaning system proper, scope of revamping provides for re-equipment of EAF-200 with replacement of drop-out box and water-cooled gas ducting, connection of gas off-take line of ladle furnace (АКП-140) to dry-type gas cleaning system and set-up of exhaust hood on roof for collection of fugitive emissions from EAF-200. Process equipment is supplied by Danieli, Italy. This measure will not only enhance operational efficiency of the main process equipment, but will also improve protection of ambient air and provide for clean air in working area of the Shop.
