Mexico’s Frisa, a leading producer of rolled rings and open-die forgings, awarded Austria’s INTECO with an order to supply a special steel plant. The new facility will include an electric-arc furnace (EAF), a ladle furnace, a vacuum degassing plant, a material-handling system and an ingot casting area. Both the EAF and ladle furnace will be operated with INTECO’s automation electrode control, ISEC, which provides high energy efficiency as well as simple configuration and handling. Start-up of the new plant is scheduled for the beginning of 2016.
