Start up of the Blast furnaces
Technician "A" (Former Employee) – Burns Harbor, IN – November 19, 2014
This was a very interesting job learning all the equipment as it was being installed. When the furnaces started it, it was trouble shooting all the problems, redesigning things to work correctly and developing the maintenance procedures for the equipment beyond the manufacturers recommendations.
The hardest part about the job was the dangerous conditions working around the hot metal and the size of everything.
The most enjoyable part was getting the quality and quantity up to levels that had not been seen before.
There was a lot of learning, then training
Very dangerous work place
