TMEIC GE awards ArcelorMittal drive and control upgrade project in Spain
TMEIC GE ArcelorMittal , headquartered in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, to upgrade existing main and auxiliary drives, and automation system at ArcelorMittal plate rolling facility in Gijon, Spain. The multi-million dollar project will allow ArcelorMittal to increase the throughput of the single-stand plate mill and produce more of the advanced alloy plate products that are used to manufacture windmill towers.
TMEIC GE says itnew control system, according to TMEIC GE.
The new upgrade project is scheduled for completion by late 2009. TMEIC GE says it will provide total system design and comprehensive site services including installation guidance, drives commissioning, automation system verification and system acceptance testing.
TMEIC GE is a joint venture between TMEIC (a joint venture between Toshiba & Mitsubishi Electric) and General Electric in the industrial drive systems business. TMEIC employs 2,200 people around the world and has annual sales in excess of $2 billion.
ArcelorMittal says it is the world’s largest steel producing company, with over 300,000 employees in more than 60 countries. ArcelorMittal has capacity in excess of 116 million tonnes per year, with annual revenue of over $105 billion. The company was created in 2006 by the merger of Arcelor and Mittal Steel.
