ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih was visited by CISDI specialists – suppliers of technology and main equipment for the reconstruction of blast furnace No. 9.
Specialists of the Chinese company CISDI, which is a partner in the implementation of a key investment project, signed an agreement on the reconstruction of the largest blast furnace at the enterprise No. 9 worth $ 30 million, signed in 2019. It includes the development of engineering, the supply of main equipment, supervision of installation and commissioning, as well as training for the personnel of the metallurgical plant. Yesterday, March 22, representatives of the Ukrainian companies STEM and M.Technology, which are CISDI’s subcontractors in the modernization of the furnace, also took part in a welcoming meeting with Chinese specialists.
CISDI is part of the MinMetals state corporation of China and is one of the world leaders in the implementation of engineering projects for the metallurgical industry. A meeting with partners at the ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih production site was planned at the first stages of the project discussion. But last year it had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and tight quarantine restrictions around the world. As a result, the project schedule was revised and re-approved jointly with CISDI. The specialists of the Chinese company will spend about three months in Kryvyi Rih to complete the basic engineering, preparation of the “Project” stage and the ATS report.
