Tenova HYL Tapped for Direct Reduction Module in Bolivia.

Tenova HYL, a Tenova company, was recently chosen by China's Sinosteel Equipment and Engineering as the technology provider for a Direct Reduction Micro-Module for Empresa Siderurgica del Mutun (ESM) at Puerto Suarez, Santa Cruz Department, in Bolivia. Tenova HYL's Direct Reduction technology will be used for the first stage of the project, which will include a 250,000-metric-tons-per-year (mt/y) direct-reduced iron (DRI) facility, a 650,000-mt/y concentration plant, a 400,000-mt/y pelletizing facility for Mina El Mutun, and a steel plant with a continuous caster and rolling mill with a total capacity of 190,000 mt/y of long products.

The module will use the state-of-the-art ENERGIRON Zero-Reformer Process and will be capable of supplying the melt shop with high-quality DRI with metallization levels of 94% and an adjustable high-carbon content in the range of 3% to 4%, Tenova HYL reported.

The 250,000-mt/y plant is expected to be in operation in mid-2021.
