Making Plant Project in the Union of Myanmar is the first implementation on
industrial scale of the unique Russian technology – the ROMELT process – which
makes it possible to process the poor iron–bearing ore without any preliminary
beneficiation and to obtain a marketable product – the pig iron. As raw materials
for the pig iron production the local poor iron ore of the Pang Pet deposit
with the iron content of ore not exceeding 29 % and the power–generating coal
of the Kye Thee coalfield are to be used.
to the prime product – the pig iron – the ROMELT process allows to produce also
slag for commercial use (building of roads, erection of structures) and
electric power in the quantities sufficient to meet the own requirements of the
Plant and to transmit the power energy into the external electric power system
of the Union of Myanmar.
preparation of the design documents of the Iron Making Plant using the Russian
Romelt process in the Union of Myanmar with an output of 200,000 tons of pig iron
annually the following organizations have participated:
- “Lengipromez” Open JSC, the
General Designer, has executed the comprehensive designing of the main
units of the Plant, including designing of the service bins, the Romelt
Shop, Pig Casting Machine, General Works Laboratory, Repair Shop, storage
facilities, plant water supply facilities, Air Compressor Station, Gas Distribution
Station of the external energy carriers systems.
- “Energoprojekt – Warszawa S.
A.” – comprehensive designing of the Coal Preparation Unit of the Iron
- “Mekhanobr Engineering Co.” – comprehensive
designing of the Ore Sizing and Beneficiation Plant.
- RUP “BelNIPIEnergoprom” –
comprehensive designing of the Waste–Heat Recovery Electric Power Station
- “Tyazhpromelektroprojekt Ltd” –
designing of the Plant electric power supply system.
The ceremony devoted to the first stage of
commissioning of the Iron Making Plant to-be-constructed according to the innovative
Russian technology “Romelt” took place on October 21, 2015 in the Union of
Myanmar. Construction is being carried out within the contract signed by the
Myanmar Economic Corporation and the Joint Stock Company Foreign Economic
Association “Tyazhpromexport” included into the “Rostec” State Corporation.
The unique technology “Romelt” represents a
single–stage process of the iron smelting from various iron–bearing materials
by means of their liquid–phase reduction using the power–generating coal,
without use of coke and preliminary preparation of the iron–bearing burden
material. Actually, this is a noblastfurnace practice of iron production from
iron ore. For the first time this technology was tested at the Integrated Iron
and Steel Works in Lipetsk and in Kazakhstan.
