ArcelorMittal’s integrated steel mill in the south of France has the capacity to produce up to 5 Million tonnes of steel per year, with over 4000 employees based at site.
The Fos-sur-Mer site is part of ArcelorMittal’s flat carbon Europe organization, producing black coil, pickled and oiled coil sheet, cut to length sheet and slit coils.
The vast site is a fully integrated steel mill, with quay facilities, sintering plant, coke oven plant, two blast furnaces, two basic oxygen converters, two continuous casters, in ladle vacuum degassing, hot strip mill and multiple finishing lines.
ArcelorMittal had already made significant investment in energy efficient core process technologies and on-site waste gas integration.
To compliment the successfully energy efficiency initiatives, ArcelorMittal challenged ABB to identify and develop energy efficiency opportunities within the site equipment with motors and drives.
