On April 29, Shandong Iron and Steel Phase I Step Two 60000Nm3/h air separation was successfully debugged oxygen by one time. It was nearly 2 months ahead of the planned production date and won high praise from the customer Shandong Iron and Steel Group Rizhao Co., Ltd.!
Shandong Iron and Steel Rizhao Company was approved by the government in 2013 to construct the Rizhao Iron and Steel Quality Base in the Lushan Industrial Park of Rizhao City, a key project for steel structure adjustment in Shandong Province. The products are widely used in marine engineering, high-end manufacturing, construction steel and other fields.
In order to meet the industrial gas demand of Rizhao Steel's boutique base, in 2016, Yingde Gases Group established Rizhao Yingda Co., Ltd., built two sets of 60000Nm3/h air separation units and supporting air compressor stations to serve the engineering construction and production operations of Shandong Iron and Steel Phase I Step One and Phase I Step Two Project. Among them, the air separation unit supporting Shandong Iron and Steel Phase I Step One Project is the 60000Nm3/h air separation unit which is first designed and manufactured independently by the Group, which is a milestone on the road of independent innovation of the Group. The device was successfully put into operation on November 5, 2017, creating the necessary conditions for the early trial production of Rizhao Steel Boutique Base.
On April 11 this year, the Shandong Iron and Steel Phase I Step Two Project was completed, and the supporting air separation unit successfully produced oxygen, which marked that all the supporting facilities of Shandong Iron and Steel Phase I Project had been put into operation. In this regard, Yang Jinguang, deputy general manager of Shandong Iron and Steel Rizhao Company, said: "This is a major victory for Rizhao Yingda Gas Company and a major victory for the construction of the Rizhao Steel Quality Base Project of Shandong Iron and Steel Group!"
