 Our Projects and Developments

Capacity Increases 
In 2004, when YILDIRIM HOLDING acquired ETI KROM, the production capacity was around 35,000 – 40,000 MT per annum. Plant A was the only plant active, operating with two 17 MVA open type submerged-arc furnaces. Since 2000, Plant B had been completely out of order.
Plant A was renovated and returned to service with a capacity of 50,000 per annum in February 2006.
In November 2008, the renovation process of Plant B began. Two Outokumpu technology, closed submerged-arc furnaces were repaired and converted to SMS Siemag technology semi-closed submerged-arc furnaces.
Plant B will start functioning with a capacity of 100,000 MT per annum in 2011, raising the total production capacity to 150,000 MT. 
Facility Modifications and New Facilities

In accordance with its corporate sustainability approach, ETI KROM signed a contract with SMS SIEMAG in February 2010 to commence work on two notable projects, building a Waste Gas Cleaning System and a Waste Gas Heat Recovery System in Elazig. 

These relevant projects are crucial steps for ETI KROM’s carbon and energy management resolution to grow in harmony with the environment. Upon completion, the environmental effects of the ferrochrome production will uphold the highest environmental standards and the energy recovered from the waste gas will make a significant reduction in carbon emissions generated.
The investment projects are expected to begin seeing results in 2012.
The chrome ore beneficiation plant in Elazig, which enriches low grade chrome ore and changes it into chrome ore concentrate, had been out of order since 2000. Following the renovation process, the plant became active in July 2008.
Other major facilities that were constructed since 2004 include a jig crushing facility, a jig screening facility and a big bag packaging facility,
Construction of the new chrome ore briquetting plant is expected to be completed by February 2011. 
After 2004, in addition to the major changes in production facilities, other investments have been made in diverse company sectors. These investments include the acquisition of new mines, the improvement of quality control management systems, the renovation of water treatment systems and administrative buildings, and the administration of concreting operations all around the Elazig headquarters.
Over six years, ETI KROM has committed more than US$ 200 million to fund its modernization and enhancement process to transform the company into one of the most influential and advanced actors in the industry.
