United Metallurgical Company OMK’s Belgorod plant LLC Belenergomash, BZEM, manufactured and supplied over 1.5 thousand tons of elements of two unique steam boilers for the Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant being built at the site power plants for the utilization of secondary fuel gases. By the end of 2021, OMK will supply another 4.4 thousand tons of boiler elements. OMK Belgorod Plant is carrying out a project involving the operation of boilers using three types of fuel: blast furnace, converter and natural gases. A unique feature of these boilers is the function of co-firing process gases from metallurgical plants; OMK's Belgorod plant has gained experience in implementing such projects. The increase in the use of secondary energy resources will allow the customer to further reduce the energy consumption of steel. Manufacturing and delivery of boilers are carried out jointly with Sibenergomash-BKZ LLC.
The plant has already shipped the frames of two steam boilers with a capacity of 603 tonnes of steam per hour each and the screens of the furnace of one of the boilers. The company's specialists also carry out installation supervision and commissioning.
Boiler equipment, which has an estimated resource of 200 thousand hours, is supplied in the most modular design. The boiler burners are designed for co-combustion of a mixture of fuel gases, which ensures low specific emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere. Control assemblies of equipment were carried out on the territory of the plant in the presence of representatives of the customer PJSC NLMK and the general contractor CJSC Trest SZEM. The receiving party highly appreciated the quality of the finished product, the culture of production and the involvement of the OMK Belgorod plant personnel in the project.
OMK Belgorod Plant is one of the leading power plant engineering enterprises in Russia, which has been supplying complex solutions for nuclear and thermal power, gas, petrochemical, industrial and civil construction for more than 80 years.
