      7 millones de toneladas de acero anualmente todos los días

      La construcción de una planta siderúrgica que nunca se detiene es una idea audaz. ArcelorMittal mejora la calidad del acero mientras genera una producción más ecológica, que funciona todos los días con EcoStruxure™ Plant de Schneider.

    • ArcelorMittal customer story Ensuring process reliability and steel quality

      By implementing the EcoStruxure™ Plant architecture, including the Ethernet-connected Modicon M580 controller, ArcelorMittal’s Dunkirk plant has achieved greater flexibility of operations. Its staff can now perform maintenance and make changes to the process without having to slow down or halt production.

      The Challenge

      • The steelworks must run 24/7, 365 days a year: Any shut down causes a knock-on effect. When the flow is broken, the furnaces immediately start to cool down and can take 1 to 2 days to get back up to the correct smelting temperatures.

      • European laws compliance: Reduce the amount of dust in the atmosphere on-site, as well as emissions to the Dunkirk region.
