SHANGHAI, Apr 29 (SMM) – Fujian Dadonghai Steel will conduct a technical upgrade and expansion project for iron and steel production, aiming to build an annualised production capacity of 3.66 million mt high-end hot-rolled coil, through cutback of outdated capacity, additions of new felicities and capacity swapping.
According to an environmental impact assessment report for the project released by local authorities, Fujian Dadonghai Steel is approved to proceed with the upgrade project by dismantling two blast furnaces of 450m3, a converter of 45mt and two converters of 50mt.
