Dongkuk Steel Mill Co. Ltd., a steelmaker in Korea, has recently contracted Tenova Goodfellow Inc., a subsidiary of Tenova, a developer and provider of sustainable solutions for the green transition of the metals industry, to improve its furnace efficiency.

The scope of the contract involves the supply and installation of Tenova’s NextGen System at Dongkuk’s Incheon Plant in Dong-gu, Incheon, Republic of Korea.

The NextGen System, tailored for Dongkuk Steel’s 120-ton AC shaft furnace, incorporates advanced hardware and temperature sensors for off-gas measurement which include two sampling stations and a central cabinet.

Characterized by its hybrid laser/extractive off-gas analysis system, NextGen provides faster analytical response times and a comprehensive spectrum of process analysis, covering CO, H2O, CO2, O2, and H2. This empowers operators with real-time monitoring and control capabilities, leading to minimized operational risks and optimized production efficiency.


“We are very proud to have been selected as a valued partner with Dongkuk Steel,” said Marcello Pozzi, Tenova Goodfellow Inc.’s CEO. “Tenova’s latest NextGen System will incorporate our newest improvements for an automatic probe cleaning system, humidity detection upstream and COppm downstream measurements for improved asset protection.”

The installation and commissioning of the system is expected to be realized by end of 2024.
