  • Endless casting and rolling operations right from the first heat

    On December 18th, thanks to the joint efforts of Danieli and Nucor teams, Nucor Steel Florida safely started on schedule, melting, casting and rolling in endless mode from the first heat.

    Located in Frostproof, Florida, USA, the new MIDA minimill has a rated capacity of 380,000 shtpy and will produce rebar ranging from #3 to #11 (9.5 to 35.8 mm) in straight bars up to 60 ft, and spooled coils up to 5 tons. Featuring the latest energy-saving and environmentally friendly melting, the MIDA casting and rolling technologies significantly reduce the overall CO2 emissions thanks to the absence of the reheating furnace.

    With the Florida minimill, Nucor will satisfy the regional demand of steel rebar, recycling the scrap available in the area and reconfirming the Endless Casting and Rolling solution as a proven solution for a sustainable steel production.

    Nucor Steel Florida (NSFL) is the fourteenth Danieli MIDA minimill featuring Endless Casting-Rolling ECR technology for long products in operation worldwide - second for the Nucor group - and fourth in the USA.

    In January 2020, the first MIDA minimill for Nucor, Sedalia, Missouri also started up quickly, having the endless casting and rolling operations in place on third day and a “more than 1 km” long billet produced on the fifth day.

    The consistent start-up of this plant validates once more the full reliability of the MIDA endless casting and rolling process, which gives steelmakers the possibility to achieve a total transformation costs from 5 to 10 % lower than a traditional minimill.

    The Nucor Florida minimill composition:

    The MIDA endless casting-rolling process route includes the Danieli ECS® scrap preheating and continuous charging system, able to feed hot scrap continuously into a 40-t, side-charging, Fastarc AC EAF; and then a ladle furnace ensures the proper refining of the steel.

    A single-strand, high-speed continuous casting machine is the core of the endless casting-rolling section. It is equipped with the Danieli Fast Cast Cube (FCC) and a 130 x 130 mm square section Power-mould copper tube directly connected, through a 4 MW induction furnace, to an 8 + 8 stands ultra-compact rolling mill.

    The finishing facilities consist of an apron roller line, for the larger sizes, the Danieli-patented Direct Rolling and Bundling system (DRB) for the smaller range and a spooler line based on the “K-Spool” technologies, able to produce coils from rebar #3 to #8 in coils up to 5 tons.

    The latest Danieli technologies for an environmentally friendly and energy saving plant are also applied to the auxiliary units, which include the Fumes Treatment Plant, based on a Pulse-jet bag filter, the Water Treatment Plant, and the Danieli heavy duty technological and maintenance cranes serving the whole plant, from the scrap yard to finished products handling.

  • Commercial Metals Company announced that CMC Steel Arizona in Mesa, AZ has begun receiving renewable energy from Salt River Project’s (SRP) new “Saint Solar” electricity generation plant.

    Irving, TX – Commercial Metals Company (CMC) announced that their micro mill in Mesa, Arizona, CMC Steel Arizona, has begun receiving renewable energy from Salt River Project’s (SRP) new “Saint Solar” electricity generation plant. CMC Steel Arizona was one of the original customers to join the first phase of SRP’s Sustainable Energy program that was announced in 2018. The Saint Solar plant, located in Coolidge, Arizona, is a 100-megawatt utility-based solar array that will provide renewable energy to CMC Steel Arizona and others in the SRP community.

    Constructed in 2009, CMC Steel Arizona is one of the most efficient and green steel producing facilities in the world. As a micro mill utilizing scrap-based Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) technology we are helping to preserve our natural resources. By using recycled scrap for 98% of our raw material, we reduce the need for natural resources. Our CO2 Scope 1 green-house gas emissions and energy consumption intensities are approximately 8 times less than the global steel making average.

    Tracy Porter, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, “Our participation in the Saint Solar project underscores our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint further through the use of renewable energy as well as producing steel from 100% recycled scrap metal and being an industry leader in the sustainable steelmaking process.”

    On August 13, 2020, CMC announced plans to build its third micro mill, AZ2, adjacent to CMC Steel Arizona. The mill will be the first in the world to produce merchant bar quality (MBQ) products through a continuous-continuous production process. AZ2 will feature Danieli’s “Q-One” technology which will allow CMC to have a direct connection between the EAF and Ladle Furnace to renewable energy sources. This technology reduces electricity transmission losses as compared to traditional methods and associated operating costs.

    “SRP is excited to partner with CMC Steel Arizona on our shared renewable energy goals,” said Jim Pratt, Associate General Manager and Chief Customer Executive at SRP. “This is just the beginning of our sustainable energy partnership and we look forward to continuing to partner with them on AZ2 and beyond."

  • Featuring Danieli Zero-Scale Separator and patented high-speed DanFilters

    Commissioning is complete for the water treatment plant engineered, manufactured and installed at Nucor Steel, Sedalia minimill, Missouri, USA. The WTP was developed to serve the greenfield steel melt shop and rolling mill, in compliance with all applicable local standards (ASME, UL, NEMA, OSHA), fulfilling all contracted requirements, notably the environmental conditions.

    The original WTP design includes a Zero-Scale Separator, so as to avoid digging a scale pit and thus reducing excavation cost, simplify the civil works requirement.

    Danieli patented DanFilters perform with high filtration speed, achieving high efficiency in less overall space. A fiberglass tank was selected to allow a closed-circuit operation, rather than a concrete basin, further minimizing civil construction. The pumping station is comprised of vertical pumps to reduce the amount of piping needed, as well as civil work requirements.

    To expedite construction and installation, the WTP components were assembled on skids at the Danieli workshop, with pre-assembled and installed valves and instrumentation. Package-type cooling towers were selected, also for simple and fast installation.

  • Danieli Automation Q-Space1 supporting digital assistance

    In the weeks starting from June 17, Factory Acceptance Tests for the hot-strip mill automation of Nucor Steel Gallatin QSP plant were executed at Danieli Automation, Italy.

    Q-Space1 allowed Nucor Steel Gallatin to participate in the tests despite travel restrictions linked to the current pandemic.

    Making the most of augmented, mixed and virtual reality, the FAT were conducted, supporting technicians throughout the field execution process, enhancing their skills for faster and more efficient completion of service and repair tasks.

    Danieli Automation Q-Space1 augmented reality, knowledge management features and artificial intelligence enabled the extended collaboration of teams by bringing together workers through a combination of live video, audio and annotations of the live shared view.

    The complete automation system of the hot-strip mill was installed in a dedicated space at Danieli Automation headquarters, along with the hardware and software infrastructure required for real-time data exchange and live shared views.

    Q-Space1 was set up with a fixed camera providing a panoramic view of the FAT area and a helmet-mounted camera to view the details of the main control desks and local control stations.

    Danieli Automation and Nucor teams ran the full set of tests as if they were in the same room, with the Nucor team actually operating the system from remote and the Danieli Automation team acting as lookouts and providing the “physical” interfacing with the automation hardware.

    Both teams were able to share the same application software tools in real time, providing clarification on the structure of various control functions.

    All the tests were completed successfully to the great satisfaction of both Nucor and Danieli Automation teams.
