Giacomo Mareschi Danieli: green technology at the core of this important partnership

Danieli Group is a full cycle provider from raw materials to finished products in the metals industry and at the heart of this innovative collaboration lies the establishment of a cutting-edge steel production facility in Thailand, based on Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) technology. What sets this project apart is the incorporation of renewable energy solutions, including hydrogen, wind and solar power, to power the production of sustainable hot-rolled coils. Danieli Group’s global leadership in green technology innovation played a key role in Meranti Green Steel’s decision to enter into this partnership. Expressing enthusiasm, Chief Executive Officer Giacomo Mareschi Danieli stated: “We are glad and proud to be partners of Meranti Green Steel for this challenging project”.  A key component of this collaboration is the implementation of the so-called Energiron, an innovative technology jointly developed by Tenova and Danieli Group. This direct reduction plant is capable of operating with up to 90 % hydrogen utilisation, marking a major leap forward in promoting a more sustainable steelmaking process, in line with the vision shared by both entities.

Giacomo Mareschi Danieli’s vision: redefining steel production with green technology

The recent collaboration between Danieli and Meranti Green Steel is set to redefine the current steel production landscape. “Danieli is one of the world’s leading suppliers for steelmaking and we believe that the advanced technology will play a critical role in decarbonizing steel supply chains”, stated Meranti Green Steel’s CEO Sebastian Langendorf. Under the partnership agreement, Danieli Group will not only lead the construction of the production plant, but also supply Meranti with cutting-edge equipment. This will include a Digimelter melting unit with a Q-One power feeder capable of green energy processing and a QSP-DUE thin-slab casting and rolling line, capable of ensuring maximum flexibility in terms of steel width, thickness and quality. The strategic alignment between Danieli Group and Meranti’s vision for the Green Steel transition underlines their shared commitment to be a leader in sustainable steel production. “We are sure – concluded Giacomo Mareschi Danielithat Danieli’s cutting-edge technologies will allow Meranti to play a leading role in the Far East, flat-product market”. This new collaboration not only represents a technological step forward, but also positions both companies as pioneers in the pursuit of a greener and more sustainable future for the steel industry. As a reliable partner with knowledge, experience and commitment, the Group guarantees operational health, sustainability and competitiveness, avoiding any interruption in metal production and offering solutions for a sustainable industry.
