Tenova secures a contract from Valbruna ASW Inc.

Tenova was awarded a contract by Valbruna ASW Inc. for the supply of a new EAF (Electric Arc Furnace). Valbruna ASW Inc. is a premier specialty steel-maker and the EAF will be installed at its facility located in Welland, Ontario (Canada). The Canadian company produces stainless, duplex and other high end nickel alloys.
The scope of the supply includes the latest generation of the EAF unit, which will replace the existing one. Tenova will also provide the associated auxiliary equipment, the material handling system, including bins batteries, hoppers and conveyor belts, for the charging of the ladle and of the EAF and the complete automation system. The complete management of this plant will be fully automatized and integrated in the new the EAF process control system.
The new EAF will guarantee thus an increase in the plant’s hourly melt shop production rate and the effectiveness and reliability in the production of high-quality steel and stainless steel.
The new EAF will be equipped with Tenova’s state-of-the-art electronic regulation TDRH 4.0 (Tenova Digital Electronic Regulation) system. TDRH 4.0 can provide a significant reduction in the electrical consumption of the EAF itself and ensures excellent arc stability.
