Tenova Goodfellow Inc. has received an order from Celsa France for the supply of one iEAF® technology platform using the NextGen® System for their 150-ton scrap AC top charge furnace in Boucau, France.
Tenova Goodfellow Inc. is a subsidiary of Tenova. Celsa France is an EAF steel producer specialized in the production of steel billets from steel scrap. This order from Celsa France represents the third NextGen system to be installed in Europe, one of the more than 15 systems installed worldwide.
The scope of supply will include Tenova’s state-of-the-art NextGen hardware for upstream off-gas measurement, which is the first critical step that enables all software solutions, including mass and energy balance that is needed for achieving net energy and melting-percent control with iEAF technology. Also included is optical temperature and velocity measurement, HMI for process data, and optimization support.
“We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Tenova,” said Nicolas Claveranne, production manager at Celsa France and project manager for this project. “The NextGen references — we are sure — will bring added value to the steelmaking operations of our plant.”
“Since the beginning of this project the co-operation with Celsa France has been fruitful, and we have worked together to fulfill its targets. As per our heritage, our support will continue during the implementation and the execution of this project to reach the expected results,” said Davide Masoero, area manager Europe Electric Arc & Ladle Furnace at Tenova.
Engineering, installation and commissioning of Tenova’s digital platform technologies is scheduled for late spring 2022.
