Primetals Technologies has received the final acceptance certificate from JSW Steel for the new process automation system in a total of 25 subsystems in the SMS-1 und SMS-2 steel works in Vijayanagar, in the Indian state of Karnataka. The integrated automation solution also includes production monitoring and ladle tracking systems. It enables production and process data to be exchanged seamlessly between different units, and all subsystems to run with consistently optimized coordination. JSW Steel can now increase production and further improve product quality with the aid of optimized process sequences. The individual units were commissioned in stages within a tight schedule less than twelve months after the contract was signed.
