Polish coking coal major JSW SA has closed the tender to select the contractor to build the ceramic block with equipment. Construction of battery no 4 in the Przyjazn Coking Plant in Dabrowa Górnicza according to the assumed design is today key for maintaining the coke and hydrocarbons production capacity volume at the current level and for future growth.
JSW KOKS SA has 3 coking plants (Przyjazn, Radlin and Jadwiga) operating jointly 6 coke oven batteries, 4 of which are located in the Przyjazn Coking Plant. The design assumptions adopted for battery no 4 provide for its construction using the so-called stamp charging technology, which makes it possible to reduce the consumption of coal with very high-quality parameters (type 35) in favour of type 34 (semi-soft coking) coal, which brings the economic effect of reducing production costs while maintaining high quality parameters.
The new battery gives the JSW Group the possibility of effective implementation of environment-friendly solutions. In addition, the project will make it possible to take advantage of preferential funding in the area of development and environmental protection, and maintain the prospects of development of new areas – including tar processing or technologies associated with hydrogen production.
