AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke has awarded a contract for the replacement of Converter No. 1 at their integrated works in Dillingen, Germany to Danieli Corus. The new converter will have a 200 tonne tapping weight and will be designed to meet the client’s objective of being able to continue their high performance steelmaking operation over a long and safe campaign. The converter vessel will be equipped with a detachable bottom and the suspension design will rely on vertical “Lamella” type elements and the patented horizontal “DANIELLA” suspension design.
This will be the seventeenth converter replacement project for Danieli Corus and the first one in Germany.
