Replacement chimney 22 for Tata

In by Marika

For Tata Steel in IJmuiden, Mercon has replaced the chimney of converter 22 for Oxy steel factory 2. The new chimney was prefabricated and then transported to Tata. First the torch top of the old chimney was removed followed by the rest of the chimney. The lifting and placement of the new chimney has been successfully carried out.

In attached movie (courtesy of Tata) the exchange operation can be followed.
