Primetals Technologies to supply EAF Quantum to Acciaieria Arvedi


Italian steel producer Acciaieria Arvedi S.p.A. has ordered an EAF Quantum from Primetals Technologies. This new type of electric arc furnace, to be installed in the Cremona steel works, reduces specific conversion costs of electric steel production by around 20 percent and will have an annual production capacity of up to 1.57 million metric tons of crude steel. The order also includes a complete dedusting system for primary, secondary and auxiliary emission sources with a heat recovery system to reuse the thermal power from the furnace offgas to produce steam for the pickling lines. The new EAF Quantum is scheduled to go on stream in the summer of 2016.
