On 2nd February, India’s Vedanta Limited successfully produced the first batch of molten iron, which marks that the blast furnace upgrade project was put into operation. This project was contracted with MCC Group.
On 19th May of 2020, both Vedanta Limited and MCC signed the EPC contract. By the end of October, MCC Group successively completed the equipment production and equipment inspection. Then the equipment was shipped separately to the port. And the whole procedures just took about 60 days, including completion of furnace shell, cooling stave, resistant materials installation, and electrical automation upgrade, which showed India “Chinese Speed”.
Currently, due to pandemic, the situation in India is very severe. The project team overcame a lot of difficulties, including short-term construction time, closure of visa and airlines, and not being able to guide and help on site. But with its sprit of high responsibilities abiding the contract, the team finally finished this project through day-and-night mailing, international calling and videoing, to provide Vedanta Limited guidance and answer to the difficulties.
