As part of the Blast Furnace reline, several process optimisations by implementing state of the art technologies will result in a reduction of the plant’s CO2 emissions and meeting climate-related objectives. TMT is proud of having been part of this project, by supplying new state of the art tapping equipment, including fully hydraulic Drilling Machines and Clay Guns, as well as Tilting Runner Drives and Jack Dam Drilling Machines.
