Danieli signs contract for electric and automation revamping of mill in Indonesia
by David Fleschen
A Final Acceptance Certificate was signed at PT Krakatau, Indonesia, for the electric and automation revamping of hot skin-pass mill.
The line rolls low- and medium-carbon or high-strength, low-alloy hot-rolled strip, with a thickness range from 1.2 to 7.0 mm
The turnkey modernization by Danieli Automation included new AC drives and a new automation control system to ease and reduce maintenance requirements and enhance the line's performance.
The new drives are more user-friendly and introduce power-recovery capability (regenerative DC Link) that improves mill performance and reduces power consumption.
Following on-time delivery, the mill's contractual top speed was reached just 10 days after the line restarted.
This job reconfirms Danieli Automation's capability and experience in plant upgrades and performance improvement.
