Tata Steel selects Danieli and Tenova for basic engineering for the Green Steel plan

Tata Steel Netherlands has awarded Danieli and Tenova contracts for the basic engineering (the elaboration of a conceptual design into a basic design in which, among other things, the capacity, process conditions and layout are determined and recorded) of a Direct Reduction Plant (DRP), an Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) that will be located in IJmuiden. This should result in an engineering package that forms the basis for Tata Steel’s permit application for the first phaseGreen Steel plan. The aim is to apply for the necessary permits before the end of this year.

“Steel is the metal of the energy transition. It has been used for more than a century in buildings, trains and all kinds of utensils, and more recently in wind turbines, solar panels, electrolysers, hydrogen pipes and electric cars. The demand for steel continues, with the need for recycled and sustainably produced steel increasing,” said Hans van den Berg, CEO of Tata Steel Netherlands. “Due to our location on the North Sea, IJmuiden is one of the best locations in Europe to make the transition to more responsible steel production – clean, green and more circular. And we are working hard to realize that ambition.”

“At the same time, we are committed to the call from our stakeholders to further minimize the impact of our company on the immediate living environment at an accelerated pace. This is also in our interest. Cleaner steel production and combating climate change will not tolerate delay.” At the end of April the cabinet willformally decidedthat it wants to implement Tata Steel’s plans to become more sustainable more quickly. Now that the cabinet has decided what the negotiating mandate of outgoing Minister Adriaansens of Economic Affairs and Climate and outgoing State Secretary Heijnen of Infrastructure and Water Management is, negotiations have started with Tata Steel to arrive at a legally binding and enforceable tailor-made agreement.

Tata Steel’s focus is now entirely on the first phase of its Green Steel plan. When the customized agreement with the government is a fact, items that have a long delivery time can be ordered, so that the company is on schedule for 2030.

Route to complete CO 2 neutrality in 2045 
In the coming years, Tata Steel will transform the Netherlands into a clean, green and circular steel company. The company aims to produce its entire product portfolio without compromising on quality and to be  completely CO 2

neutral by 2045, as one of the first major steel factories in the world. Tata Steel is implementing its Green Steel plan in three phases. The first phase will be put into use in 2030 and consists of 1 DRP and 1 EAF to replace Blast Furnace 7 and Cooking and Gas Factory 2 (KGF2). This means 40% less CO 2 emissions. The company also wants to take measures to further reduce emissions and particulate matter emissions and to use more scrap in the production of steel (from 17% to 30%).

In the second phase of the transition, Tata Steel aims to close Blast Furnace 6 and Cooking and Gas Factory 1 (KGF1), which should lead to a total CO 2 reduction of approximately 80%. In the years that follow, with the end goal of 2045, Tata Steel will then become completely CO 2 neutral.

Commitment to further reduce the impact 
Last year, Tata Steel introduced its Green Steel plantightened. The plan has a clear timeline, goals and end point. Health and climate play a prominent role in this. The plan explicitly addresses the concerns of local residents and other stakeholders in the IJmond.
