Synopsis:Tenova, a leading name in sustainable solutions for the metals and mining industries, is set to provide innovative technology to Ternium's cutting-edge steel mill in Pesquería, Mexico. With a significant investment of 2.2 billion USD, this project aligns with Ternium's 2030 decarbonization commitment and adheres to the USMCA's "melted and poured" rule of origin. Tenova's contribution includes a state-of-the-art Direct Reduction plant, an Electric Arc Furnace equipped with advanced technology, and environmentally conscious material handling systems.Article:In a landmark collaboration, Tenova is poised to supply Ternium, a prominent steelmaker, with groundbreaking technologies for its state-of-the-art steel mill in Pesquería, Mexico. This ambitious project entails a total investment of 2.2 billion USD and represents a significant step towards Ternium's 2030 decarbonization commitment. It also aligns with the "melted and poured" rule of origin outlined in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).Tenova's role in this transformative endeavor encompasses a range of advanced components, including a Direct Reduction (DR) plant integrated with Material Handling System (MH), an Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) equipped with Consteel® and Electromagnetic Stirrer Consteerrer®, two ladle furnaces (LF), and an eco-friendly fume treatment plant. Collectively, these elements facilitate the production of 2.6 million tons of top-quality steel, tailored for the automotive sector.The Material Handling (MH) system serves a critical role by delivering iron ore to the DR plant, ensuring seamless operations. It not only optimizes handling and storage for DRI production but also incorporates advanced dedusting equipment designed to minimize pollution and environmental impact.The heart of this innovative venture is the Direct Reduction plant, leveraging the ENERGIRON® Direct Reduction technology jointly developed by Tenova and Danieli. This process allows for the direct charging of the Consteel® EAF with hot DRI via the Hytemp® pneumatic transport system, emphasizing energy efficiency and flexibility. The plant is also future-ready with carbon capture technology and the potential utilization of hydrogen, making it a sustainable frontrunner in steel production.The Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) is enhanced with the revolutionary electro-magnetic stirring system Consteerrer®, a product of Tenova's exclusive global partnership with ABB. This innovation reduces operating costs, ensures reliable operations, and guarantees top-quality steel – vital for the development of e-mobility. To enhance safety, the EAF is equipped with Tenova's Safe+ technology for leakage detection and damage prevention.Roberto Pancaldi, Tenova CEO, expressed enthusiasm for being part of Ternium's largest investment endeavor and contributing to their decarbonization journey. This project is a testament to the shared commitment between Tenova and Ternium to pioneer sustainable steelmaking, combining cutting-edge technologies within a state-of-the-art facility.Conclusion:The collaboration between Tenova and Ternium represents a significant stride toward greener and more efficient steel production. By integrating sustainable technologies and innovative processes, this project marks a significant achievement in the steel industry's journey towards a more eco-friendly and economically viable future.
