Tenova has recently been contracted for a new Flexible Modular Furnace (FMF®) at Pomina 3 in Vietnam.
Tenova was recently awarded a new contract for the new furnace concept, the Flexible Modular Furnace (FMF®), for Pomina 3 steel plant, part of Pomina Steel Corporation in Ba Ria, Vung Tau region, Vietman.
In the Pomina 3 steel plant, the steelmaker upgraded the 120 tons Consteel® EAF – supplied by Tenova in 2013 – into a Tenova FMF®. Adopting this new technology, Pomina 3 will also be able to charge the furnace with hot metal coming from the new blast furnace. This solution will allow Pomina 3 to adopt a hybrid electrical/integrated steelmaking technology minimizing CAPEX and gaining a savings on production costs.
The start-up of this plant is foreseen in early 2019.
Pomina Group (former Thep Viet) started the collaboration with Tenova almost 15 years ago, with a first contract for Consteel® EAF, ladle furnace and continuous caster, followed by another Consteel® EAF and, more recently, by a cold mill complex for pre-painted galvanized flat steel.
