When we are talking about the steel industry we usually refer to it as being “heavy”, in the sense of operational processes, production and as a business, with thousands of workers and huge equipment. With the characteristics of the deep-processed steel smelting technology that they are using, Hoa Phat Dung Quat Steel enterprise is concerned about the balance between efficient production activities and environmental protection. This is an important issue that needs to have an optimal plan to address it. By investing in technology, a digital transformation of those processes is the direction this business has to choose. iLotusLand software is the best solution to contribute in the area of automatic environmental data monitoring.
The Hoa Phat Dung Quat Steel Joint Stock Company was established in February 2017, and is the main investor in the construction and operation of the Hoa Phat Iron and Steel Production Complex in the Dung Quat Economic Zone, in the province of Quang Ngai.
