Summary:A significant stride was made on July 19, 2023, as the first coke oven battery of the Risun Weishan cokemaking project in Indonesia marked its breakthrough by producing its maiden batch of coke. Sinosteel MECC, a subsidiary of Sinosteel E&T, and the project's EP general contractor, achieved a remarkable feat with this accomplishment. This initiative not only stands as Indonesia's largest cokemaking venture but also highlights the substantial international endeavor by a Chinese enterprise.Article: Situated in the Qingshan Industrial Park, Sulawesi, the project encompasses six sets of coke oven batteries, totaling 66 ovens each with a chamber height of 7.1 meters. This configuration aims to yield an annual coke production of 4.8 million metric tons. Noteworthy is the application of Sinosteel MECC's proprietary technology, which effectively reduces energy consumption by 8% per ton of coke compared to the industry norm. The top-charging coke oven, featuring a unique single-heating, double-channel design with segmented heating and energy-efficient attributes, distinguishes itself through its streamlined structure, efficient layout, extended campaign life, and dedication to energy conservation and environmental welfare.Indonesia's historical significance as the cradle of the Maritime Silk Road adds depth to this achievement. Sinosteel MECC's successful initiation of the first coke oven battery pays homage to the 10th anniversary of "the Belt and Road" Initiative. This milestone bears profound significance, serving as a testament to the enduring partnerships cultivated among nations linked by this global initiative.Conclusion: The triumphant commencement of the first coke oven battery at the Risun Weishan project echoes the progress fostered by international collaboration. This feat not only showcases technological prowess but also underscores the spirit of camaraderie that "the Belt and Road" Initiative embodies. As this endeavor continues, it illuminates the potential for transformative partnerships and advancements on a global scale.
