N.T.S Steel Group Public Company Limited has awarded Primetals Technologies an order to modernize
its electric arc furnace in Chonburi, Thailand. The furnace will be equipped with a new electrode control
system, the Foaming Slag Manager and a refined combined burner (RCB) system. These measures are
intended to reduce the electricity and electrode consumption of the electric arc furnace. The hydraulic
system for the electrode lifting columns will also be modified under the project which is scheduled for
completion in December 2015.
