Uhde Expands Hüttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann´s Coke Oven Plant
This new coke oven battery will enable HKM to increase its current production from 1,16 to 2,32 Mt/a of coke. The coke oven battery will comprise 70 large-capacity ovens, the chambers will have an effective chamber volume of 70 m3. The new coke oven plant will be equipped with the latest state of the art, including the low-NOx COMBIFLAME® heating system developed by Uhde and the PROven® single-chamber pressure control system for reducing emissions at oven closures due to leakage arising from deviations from normal operation. The expansion of the existing gas treatment unit will increase the current throughput from 75000 to 160000 m3/h of coke oven gas. Uhde’s services with regard to this coke oven plant project include the engineering, supply and erection of most of the overall complex. The plant is scheduled to produce its first coke in autumn 2013 (06/2011).
