Our ASP will increase steel production in Uzbekistan
Red Mountain Energy has completed start-up and commissioning of an air separation plant (ASP) to supply oxygen, nitrogen, and argon to the OJSC Uzmetkombinat, the giant Uzbek metallurgical plant.
This new and reliable source of high purity industrial gasses is expected to increase steel production, and reduce overall costs.
The plant’s unique feature is its ability to operate two modes of work, an internal compression operating mode yielding up to 10,000 nm3/h of oxygen, and an external compression operating mode yielding up to 6,000 nm3/h of oxygen. Both operating modes are used to produces pure argon by low-temperature rectification.
Red Mountain Energy specialists have carried out engineering, equipment selection, the development of detailed design package, equipment supply management, installation supervision, commissioning and start-up, and Red Mountain Energy experts have also trained operating personnel.
The ASP delivery package includes:
- 1 air separation unit
- 4 main compressors
- 1 booster compressor
- recycling water system with cooling towers and pumps
- liquid products storage and gasification system
Uzmetkombinat went on stream in 1956 and produces over 90% of all ferrous metals in the Republic of Uzbekistan. The first priority has been to increase the rolled steel output and to enhance its quality. To this end Red Mountain Energy was chosen as a company with extensive experience in the construction of air separation machinery.
We look forward to a long-term partnership with Uzmetkombinat!
