Tubatse Ferrochrome TFC
TFC was initially built as a three-furnace operation in 1975 as a joint venture between Gencor Ltd and Union Carbide Inc (USA). In the same year, the Union Carbide Inc. shareholding was taken over by Samancor, and in 1989 Samancor acquired the Gencor Ltd shareholding. During the years 1989-1990 the plant was expanded to five furnaces with the sixth furnace being built in 1996. The plant is situated in Steelpoort, Limpopo Province and is in close proximity to ECM. The core business of the operation is the production of charge chrome using six SAFs, one metal recovery plant, and a Pellet and Sintering Plant (PSP). The smelting complex includes Tubatse Chrome, a joint venture with Sinosteel and NST Ferrochrome (Pty) Ltd.
