PJSC “NLMK” is one of the most modern steel-making enterprises in Russia, the constantly growing production rate of which requires implementation of modern energy-efficient solutions to maintain a leading position on the metallurgical market of Russia.
JSC “NLMK-Engineering” is a permanent general designer on the Lipetsk site, and it means, the quality requirements to the project documentation performed must comply with high international standards. The use of the state-of-the-art methods of design for “NLMK-Engineering” has long become mandatory in the course of reconstruction and technical re-equipment of facilities, similar to BF№4.
“M TECHNOLOGY” LLC together with Gongyi Anzheng Refractories Ltd. acted as a designer of the cooling system, power complex, BF central unit and as a supplier of the main equipment of the cooling system of BF №4.
The most modern approach to designing is the use of BIM (Building Information Model) technology. The design process starts after a full 3D scanning of the entire reconstruction object, creating a 3D model of its existing position, followed by a virtual dismantling of the equipment, systems and other facilities of the complex. The next step is creation of a detailed 3D model of the designed objects and systems, combined into one big 3D model of the complex, which allows you to see the full picture of the upcoming large-scale repairs and to avoid possible inconsistencies during installation. The connection of the 3D model with the timeline enables you to virtually display the entire process of technical re-equipment, which will result in a 4D model with an optimized construction schedule, and it means, the blast furnace will be blown in on time!
The elements of the complex BIM model, developed by “M TECHNOLOGY” LLC, show high design detailing, which allows you to take into account the finest points for avoiding collisions and errors when ordering equipment and materials.
