Salzgitter relying on ThyssenKrupp Anlagenservice
Oberhausen-based ThyssenKrupp Anlagenservice GmbH has been commissioned as general contractor for lining the blast furnace C of Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH in the spring of 2008. This is the biggest deal negotiated between the two so far and a further proof of ThyssenKrupp Anlagenservice’s competence as a services provider and megaproject player.
During the six-week shutdown from April to May 2008, around 130 mechanics will be employed in Salzgitter. The job comprises the clearing of the blast furnace including the draining of the iron sump, mechanical work such as the dismantling and reinstallation of over 1,000 cooling elements and the complete skirt, shipments, the dismantling and reinstallation of the hot-blast distribution system including expansion joints, the refractory lining of the blast furnace and the hot-blast distribution system as well as the part revamping of the casting shop with slag spout.
