Tata Steel invested in a new evaporative cooling system for the Basic Oxygen Steelmaking (BOS) plant in South Wales, which would produce steam and generate electricity. The 10MW reduction in energy consumption will improve sustainability and power an estimated 20,000 homes.
Iconsys was asked to design, supply, install and commission a new plant-wide control system to regulate the complete process.
The full turnkey control system from Iconsys comprised:
The whole plant PLC, SCADA and drive system was connected on a high-speed Ethernet FO network, which included communication converters to legacy Eurotherm hardware.
“By equipping our BOS plant with a state-of-the-art evaporative cooling system, we will improve Port Talbot’s productivity and energy efficiency. We will also build on the ability to recycle and reuse process gases that our Energy Recovery plant brought us.”
