Stoilensky. Construction of the pelletizing plant
A pelletizing plant with a capacity of 6 million tonnes of 65% Fe pellets per year was built at Stoilensky.
The best available technology and equipment was selected during the design phase. The largest induration furnace in Europe ensures the plant’s high performance at 780 tonnes of pellets produced per hour. The Stoilensky plant is the first in the Russian metals and mining industry to use high-efficiency hyperbaric filters to remove fluid during ore processing.
The concept behind the design of the pelletizing plant is that of an environmentally friendly, waste-free facility, in which waste charge material and captured dust are fully recycled. A high efficiency dedusting system captures up to 98% of emissions.
It took two years to build the high-tech facility at Stoilensky. The active phase of the project, which is the largest in its region, began in 2014 and required total investment of around $680 million (34 billion rubles).
NLMK Engineering organized and carried out the construction control of the facility.
