Siemens wins Large Order Intake in China – Siemens drives meet all requirements in Chinese steel plant

A current BaoSteel Hot Strip Mill project in China will get a boost from Siemens Large Drives Applications. 

Siemens was awarded with the contract by Primetals Technologies Ltd. (Primetals) based in London. Primetals is a leading global provider of engineering, plant construction and lifecycle services in the metal industry.

Primetals Technologies awarded Siemens Large Drives Applications to deliver more than 20 units of the Sinamics SM150 frequency converters.

Baosteel is an extremely modern company, which is a global leader in iron and steel production as well as other business areas. The new production complex in Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province, comprises three blast furnaces. In total, more than 20 Siemens Sinamics SM150 drive systems will be used in the new plant, for demanding low and high-speed applications with single or multi-motor systems that require high dynamic performance and regenerative capabilities. To ensure quick load changes and overloads in large adjustment ranges, the converters are optimized to customer-specific performance parameters. In addition, the Sinamics SM150 medium voltage drive systems are equipped with various special options, which ensure low-maintenance operation. The drive systems supplied by Siemens feature a high degree of integration and are also particularly maintenance-friendly. They are ideal for demanding applications such as steel plants, where dynamic performance is required with high force effects.

The Sinamics SM150 is a premium medium voltage converter for low and high-speed applications with single or multi motor systems that require high dynamic performance and regenerative capabilities.
