Corus Process Engineering has been awarded a multi million pound contract from Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited’s Visakhapatnam Steel Plant to modify and enhance the company’s number 2, four strand bloom caster at its plant.
As a turnkey contract, Corus Process Engineering’s responsibilities include the complete design, equipment supply, installation and commissioning of the modified bloom caster.
Corus Process Engineering will lead the project, with its consortium partner TATA Projects, handling some of the design, indigenous equipment sourcing and installation work.
Mr Brian Stalker international sales manager for Corus Process Engineering said that “The contract suits Corus Process Engineering’s skill sets entirely and includes supply of new moulds and top zones, mould oscillators and mould table, Tundish car frames, modified strand guide segments and enhanced secondary cooling spray systems. Corus Process Engineering is also responsible for replacing the process control and an automation system associated with the caster, as well as electrical works, including new electric motors and cabling.”
The number 2 bloom caster is one of six identical casters at RINL’s steel plant, which all share a common casting floor.
