Novelis modernises hot rolling mill28 September 2023

?Novelis hot rolling mill ABB medium voltage synchronous motors will help ensure the highest levels of availability for Novelis

Novelis is working with ABB to upgrade its third-party devices and controls system as part of a modernisation project at its hot rolling mill in New York.

To futureproof the mill, ABB is replacing obsolete and outdated equipment with new switchgears, transformers, medium voltage drives, medium voltage synchronous motors, motor control centres and auxiliary controls, all integrated with the facility’s existing non-ABB control system. This will support Novelis’ ambitions for increased power capacity and reliability. Commissioning of the upgrade is expected by the end of 2023.

The Oswego mill produces aluminium sheet for the automotive, beverage can, and building and construction markets.

Siraj Boudighar, sales manager North America for metals, process industries, ABB, said: “By leveraging our long-term experience and in-depth knowledge of metals industry processes, including more than 400 references for modernisation projects since the year 2000, we are able to tailor technology packages that meet the specific needs of each customer.”
