Last June, ArcelorMittal Acindar awarded Russula a contract to implement Phase 2 of the electrical and automation upgrade of the two-strand wire rod mill located in Villa Constitution, Argentina. The upgrade will improve rolling performance and product quality, while replacing obsolete equipment.
The ArcelorMittal and Russula team previously upgraded the drives for the mill during the Phase 1 maintenance shutdown. Phase 2 entails upgrading the wire rod mill automation system and flawlessly integrating the upgraded drives and auxiliary equipment control. Existing ABB AC450 controllers will be replaced with the AC800M model and mounted in new cabinets. New Simotion positioning systems and logic will also be supplied for the shears.
To reduce the commissioning time and ensure a smooth switchover, the new automation and control equipment will undergo a FAT test in the Russula workshops in A Coruña, Spain as well as extensive on-site tests before the shutdown. Commissioning is planned for 2023.
