Dedusting System for Blast Furnace 9, Germany
Location: Duisburg, Germany
ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe operates a total of four own blast furnaces at its site in Duisburg, Germany. Blast furnace 9 originates from 1962 and was already completely revamped and enlarged in 1987. In 2012, it was again shut down and brought up-to-date with the latest technology. During this refurbishment, the dedusting system of the casthouse received new insulation. Blast furnace 9 started operation again in 2015.
- High safety standards had to be consistently adhered to during modernization, both regarding the erection of the scaffold as well as its utilization.
- Almost limitless possibilities to combine all system components of the scaffolds during the insulation work were expected. And all this at a cost-effective price.
