A new Consteel® Evolution combined with a Tenova iRecovery system will guarantee to Ori Martin a reduction in the consumption to the lowest level while contributing district heating to the local community.
Milan, October, 4th 2014. – Ori Martin is revamping the first European Consteel, installed in Brescia, Italy,
In 1998, and which is still operating with a high level of performances today. After 16 years of continuous and successfull operation, the feeding system for EAF will be substituted for a new Consteel Evolution ® that will increase flexibility, improve quality and reduce consumption.
The new Consteel Evolution ® will be combined with a Tenova iRecovery system, able to recover the thermal energy present in the dirty fume coming from the Electrical Arc Furnace and generate steam.
The Tenova new iRecovery system will deliver thermal energy to the Italian city of Brescia heat district grid during winter time (10 MW) and will feed an ORC turbo-generator to produce electric energy for Ori Martin’s internal use. The steel plant will have a saving on fuel consumption with a consequent reduction in CO2 emissions of approximately 10,000 t/y. The implementation of service by new the system is planned for the 2015-16 season.
Ori Martin’s core business for many yearshas been the production of special steels for mechanical engineering, and, in particular, for the automotive sector. The research for even more detailed and qualitative market niches and the specialization in steels that more than adequately meet the demand of the European automotive industry, have enabled Ori Martin to offer more than two hundred different types of steel.
