JSW USA Restarts Mingo Junction
JSW Group reopens its facility in Ohio: Mingo Junction is now the largest Tenova Consteel® system in North America.
After almost ten years of inactivity, JSW USA, part of JSW Group, restarted, in mid-December last year, its facility in Mingo Junction, Ohio.
After being idle for 3,545 days, the facility will be melting its own steel being more cost effective and ensuring the highest quality for its customer.
The process used in Mingo Junction is the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) in combination with Tenova's exclusive Consteel® system, the only fully tested industrial process in operation today that continuously pre-heats and feeds metallic charge to the EAF, while simultaneously controlling gaseous emissions.
Counting more than 50 installation all over the world, JSW Mingo Junction is the largest Consteel® in North America.
“I am particularly proud that the Tenova team started working with JSW USA from day one to get this facility ready”, said Kyle Shoop, Vice president sales and engineering Upstream North America, “Several months ago, JSW USA started a monumental task to restart a mill that had not been operational for almost ten years. Now that the plant is producing steel again, we look forward to continuing to work alongside JSW USA to improve production and assist them in their future plans for the facility”.
