Hegang Group-owned Tangshan Iron and Steel has commenced production through its upgraded belt roaster pellet plant from Oct 30. The total annual pellet production capacity of the plant is around 10mn mt. The mill was upgraded to make it its operations green and to achieve higher efficiency by slashing power consumption.
The upgradation of the mill was done by Sinosteel Equipment, which in 2019 updated the Sansteel Minguang mill. Sinosteel states, at the mill, the daily output of the project is around 6,200mt, exceeding designed levels of 6,060mt per day. The company states it will continue to work in the HBIS Tangsteel New Area for intelligent pellet manufacturing and promote rapid development in the field.
