Siemens modernizes electrical and automation systems in Korean casting-rolling plant


Erlangen, Mar 31, 2006, The Siemens Industrial Solutions and Services Group (I&S) has received an order from the Korean company Hyundai Steel to supply parts of the electrical and automation systems for a casting-rolling plant at its Danjin site. Both parties agreed not to disclose the volume of the order. Commissioning is scheduled for October 2006.

The Dangjin steelworks complex in Asan Bay, southwest of Seoul, is now operated by Hyundai Steel, which took it over from Hanbo Steel. After a period of several years out of commission, the first plant to recommence operation at the site at the beginning of 2005 was the combined casting-rolling plant, with a nominal capacity of two million tons per year. Siemens provided support at the time with the reactivation of the electrical equipment.

As part of the stage-by-stage modernization of the existing electrical equipment, Siemens is supplying new drive technology and automation systems for the two hot strip coilers, along with new drives for the delivery roller tables. Siemens is also responsible for supervising installation of the equipment, commissioning and customer training. The project is being processed in close cooperation between the Siemens Competence Center for hot strip coilers in Vienna, the Siemens Regional Company in Korea and Siemens I&S in Erlangen.
