The Schwelgern and Hamborn/Bruckhausen hot metal plants of TKS and two HKM blast furnaces
produce about 18 million tons of hot metal per year and make Duisburg the
largest hot metal production location in Europe.
TKS operates no 8 and no 9 blast furnaces at the Hamborn plant.
A Cupola furnace is operated for waste recycling. No 4 blast furnace is on cold standby.
The Schwelgern 1 and 2 blast furnaces are among the largest blast furnaces worldwide.
I am very grateful to the staff and management of the TKS blast furnace department for the kind cooperation and support of my work!
