The Italian company Danieli announced that it would supply the Bangladesh-based Unitex Steel plant with a green steel plant. The supply includes auxiliary stations for steam and water treatment as well as the latest electrical and control systems.
The plant will operate on a highly efficient 100-tonne Digimelter featuring a Q-One digital feeder, continuous scrap charging and pre-heating systems that melt the scrap competitively.
Danieli’s patented Q-One power feed provides digital control of the electric arc furnace to reduce electrical energy consumption.
The hot cast steel billets will be shipped directly into the Danieli Centro Combination 150 FPH Reheating Furnace, which will be pre-cooked and heat-lined in the workshop to reduce installation time and costs on the site.
To ensure production flexibility, the ultra-flexible rolling mill will have 18 switchable vertical and horizontal stands.
The bar finisher also features a 90-meter cooling bed with an additional water mist cooling system, and two 12-meter single-head magnets for profiles.
The plant is scheduled to be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2024 with a production capacity of one million tonnes per year of long products, including rebar, angles, and segments.
