In 1934, the PJSC “Zaporizhstal” is the work of the DP number 2, and in 1938 – DP number 3, while the largest in the world, its volume of 1300 cubic meters.

In 1935 the PJSC “Zaporizhstal” comes into operation the first open-hearth furnace. After it has entered into service just two open hearth furnaces – the first time in the global steel industry.

In 1937, the company enters into operation the first domestic slabbing. He becomes the first not only in the country but also in Europe, and only the third in the world.

In 1938, PJSC “Zaporizhstal” is the work of Europe’s first continuous hot rolling sheet steel. By its power and bandwidth new shop is unique in Europe.

In 1939 part of the work of the cold rolling shop № 1.

By 1940 PJSC “Zaporizhstal” produces 70 percent of all steel sheet is produced while in the country. From this point on agricultural engineering and automotive country got thin sheet products produced domestically.

PROGRESS

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

The continuous improvement program has begun at PJSC “Zaporizhstal” in August 2012.

Continuous improvement is a comprehensive systematic approach to the solution of industrial problems. It includes process optimization for decreasing consumption of raw materials, materials, production cycle time and improvement of product quality.

The program objective is to achieve the state, in which every employee could discover the existing problems, identify their cause and implement systematic solutions for elimination and prevention of these problems.

Key areas of work:

• bonus system in accordance with KPI, developed and implemented in subdivisions of the Works. The system is being constantly improved in order to increase performance;

• lists of controlled parameters of technological process and equipment, developed for improvement of product quality;

• process optimization through the series of operational improvements, carried out in subdivisions of the Works;

• systematic analysis of deviation reasons by employees of all levels with development of correcting and preventive measures;

• proposal submission system and work of continuous improvement teams; •

“School of Industrial Managers” on the base of the continuous improvement department of “Zaporizhstal”

• «5S» – workplace arrangement system, which substantially improves performance and controllability of the processes, improves corporate culture and increases labour efficiency.

The continuous improvement system at PJSC “Zaporizhstal” has a range of prospects, including:

– Implementation of ТРМ – system of total productive maintenance, in which process and maintenance staff participate jointly;

– Implementation of SMED – changeover of the equipment with continuous increase of its performance;

ENERGY SAVING

One of the area of priority of PJSC “Zaporizhstal” is the increasing of energy efficiency and production resources conservation.

Energy management system of the Steel Works was certified for the compliance with international standard ISO 50001 that allows achieving significant energy savings by applying best management practices without significant investment. Energy management system allows reducing the cost and energy intensity of products, energy sources costs, improves waste management and ensures the compliance with the requirements for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Amongst the key successfully implemented by PJSC “Zaporizhstal” energy conservation projects is putting into operation a pulverized coal injection plant, which allowed the Steel Works completely to stop using natural gas in blast furnace production.

In spring 2016 PJSC “Zaporizhstal” together with “Zaporozhkoks” implemented a project for the secondary gases exchange. Nowadays a cheaper analogue of natural gas is used in sinter plant, power plant, rolling mill shops (blooming shop, hot strip rolling shop) – mixed coke-oven and blast-furnace gas and mixed natural gas and blast-furnace gas.

Therefore in 2016 the Steel Works record decreased the consumption of natural gas in production to 160 million m3, which is 22% (44 million m3) lower than 2015 values (204 million m3), and this is an obvious success. The plan for the future is to changeover from open-hearth furnace method of steelmaking to converter method. This will allow achieving an even more significant energy-conserving effect

In 2017, under the project implementation for the secondary gases exchange between “Zaporizhstal” and “Zaporozhkoks”, a gas flow adjuster of waste-heat boiler РК85-1 of coking plant was modernized. This allowed increasing the volume of coke-oven gas supplies to Zaporizhstal to 8 million m3 per year, reducing natural gas consumption by 4 million m3per year. The economic benefit will allow Zaporizhstal to save UAH 26 million per year additionally.

A lot of attention is paid to the efficiency of electricity and other energy resources at the Steel Works.

As an example, there is a popular System of bids submission at the Steel Works. All rational ideas of “Zaporizhstal” employees are being introduced into production. The authors of the implemented projects are rewarded. In 2016, the economic benefit of the System amounted to UAH 215 million.

INVESTMENTS AND INNOVATIONS

Zaporizhstal actively upgrading of existing equipment, innovates constantly increasing volume and efficiency, improving product quality, reducing costs. The priority areas are retooling:

  • energy and resource efficiency;
  • improving the quality and range of steel products;
  • to increase production;
  • protection of the environment.

Realized investment projects 2012-2013years:

  • commissioning of the coal storage base in the complex installation of PCI in blast furnaces,
  • reconstruction aglomashiny №1 with the construction of a new efficient gas cleaning unit.

Zaporizhstal implementing modernization projects : – Construction of a new line chlorohydrin acid etching with hydrochloric acid regeneration plant . Commissioning of the new line chlorohydrin acid etching and URSC will reduce emissions by 83% sulfuric acid vapor and completely eliminate discharges into the river Dnepr plant from cold rolling mill, as well as to increase the production of etched metal with 212 thousand tons / year, resulting in the regeneration process hydrochloric acid is a byproduct of the production of 16,8 thusand tons / year of iron oxide , which allow to partially replace the charge in the manufacture of sinter plant. The project budget is 730 million UAN. – Refurbishment of DP- 4. The reconstruction project provides new aspiration system casthouse and Stock house assembling, replacing the use of natural gas in the pulverized coal. As a result of reconstruction of the DP -4 increase furnace capacity to 1112 thousand tons of pig iron per year (since 1052 tonnes). Aspiration installation casthouse and stock house assembling furnace includes shelter gutters and local outlets with cleaning dust-gas mixture in a bag filter, which provides a degree of cleaning up to European standards. Investment will be about 600 million UAN. – Reconstruction of gas cleaning aglomashine №2. Reconstruction of gas cleaning will reduce the dust content to 50 mg/m3; of sulfur dioxide – to 400 mg/m3 and allow phases to reduce dumping of sludge from water reverse cycle sinter plant. Through this event, the environmental situation in Zaporozhye improve. The project budget is 80 million UAN.
