ORI Martin has awarded Tenova a new contract to replace its Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) at its mill in Brescia (Italy). The revamping of ORI Martin’s EAF highlights the group’s ongoing commitment to evolve and innovate in its pursuit of a sustainable steel sector.
With this new contract, ORI Martin will finalize the revamping of their plant, optimizing consumption and process for the safe production of steel with minimal environmental impact.
The Brescia plant will also be ready for the installation of an Electro-Magnetic Stirrer with Tenova’s Consteerrer® process which will increase process efficiency. The Consteerrer® technology is an innovative electro-magnetic stirring system, developed through an exclusive worldwide partnership with ABB. It offers significantly low operating costs, extremely reliable and safe operations, as well as superior quality steel. The Consteerrer® enhances the Consteel® Evolution process with ABB’s ArcSave® non-contact electromagnetic stirring of the furnace’s liquid bath and can be customized to match the needs of different EAF process steps.
Start-up of the new furnace is scheduled for June 2024.
