Castellanza, May 17, 2021 – China Baowu Steel Group Corporation Limited, leader in the global steel industry, awarded Tenova, a leading company specialized in sustainable solutions for the green transition of the metals industry, two contracts for the revamping of a fully automatic roll shop for its silicon steel plant at Baoshan Iron and Steel, in Baoshan, Shanghai, China. The scope of the contract includes the disassembly, relocation and revamping of five Pomini roll grinders andtwo Pomini auto loaders with the complete automation system.
In 2008, Pomini Tenova, worldwide leader in the production of roll grinders, supplied a fully automatic roll shop with five roll grinders and two auto loaders for the Cold Rolling Mill of the Group’s Stainless Steel Branch. With this revamping, the previous roll shop will be transferred to the Baoshan Silicon Plant, where the customer is expanding its production of non-grain oriented silicon steel coils.
The current roll shop will be completely upgraded with the most advanced automation system, which will integrate all grinders and loaders and introduce innovative technological solutions ensuring the highest safety and quality standards.
The completion of the project is forecasted in summer 2022.
