Tenova Goodfellow Inc., a subsidiary of Tenova, has received an order from Celsa France, an EAF steel producer specialized in the production of steel billets from steel scrap, for the supply of one iEAF® technology platform using the NextGen® System for their 150ton scrap AC top charge furnace in Boucau, France.
This order from Celsa France represents the third NextGen® system to be installed in Europe, one of the over 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 & 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”, states 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”.
Engineering, installation and commissioning of Tenova’s Digital Platform technologies is scheduled for late spring 2022.
