HUTNÍ PROJEKT Frýdek-Místek supply for coking plant

HUTNÍ PROJEKT Frýdek Místek a.s. signed a contract for the supply of chemical installation of the coking plant for Vishakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) in India which is expanding the current coke production with a coke oven battery No. 5 increasing the total annual production capacity to 7.3 million tons of coke.

The signing of the contract was preceded by nearly three-years effort in bid processing and participation in negotiating detailed tender conditions. The key to succeed in the tender was in finding reliable local partners. The most extensive foreign contract in over 60 years of the company's history will be implemented under Czech company’s leadership with the participation of Indian partners over the next 26 months.

Official signing of the contract took place in Vishakhapatnam, India. Mr. David Wilson, CEO of VSP and Mr. Marcel Jenčo, Managing Director of HUTNÍ PROJEKT Frýdek Místek a.s. signed the contract together with the companies which are part of the supplying consortium Mr. Chetan Sangani, Managing Director of HUTNI PROJECT FM INDIA Limited, and Mr. Mr. Rajeev Jain, CEO of BEC Bhilai.

The new contract is another proof of the well-aimed effort of HUTNÍ PROJEKT Frýdek-Místek a.s. to succeed on foreign markets. The company intends to focus on overseas markets in this area, but it also wants to expand into other fields closely related to coke production.
