UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 26, 2017. EVRAZ Holding’s Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Works (NTMK) recently coordinated a blast-furnace workers’ workshop, with twenty representatives of Russia’s leading metallurgical enterprises coming on site, the company press service reports.

Workers from Novolipetsk Metallurgical Works, Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works, Mechel, Severstal, Tulachermet, EVRAZ Holding’s West-Siberian Metallurgical Works, and EVRAZ Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise took part in the workshop.

The goal is to provide an experience-sharing environment for people from various production departments: repair technicians, steel-smelting operators, railroad technicians, power engineers, and by-product coke industry workers.

‘The two days of the workshop were spent exchanging experience and discussing the metallurgical industry’s shared problems. Visitors also went to the plant’s Blast Furnace 5 facility to look into the technicalities of the loading process and looked at Russia’s first operating coal injection unit that was designed and built within the country,’ the press service says.

At the end of this guided tour, the workshop participants came up with their feedback on pig iron smelting technology and the quality of charging material.

NTMK was, in fact, the third and the last site for the workshop; prior to arriving at the plant, the workshop attendants also went to Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works and Chelyabinsk Plant.
