ArcelorMittal Spain has installed three steam boilers, as well as a water treatment plant, at its steel plant in Aviles.
The boilers and treatment system, supplied by energy services company Edison Next, have been designed to optimize the steelmaker’s production process, with a focus on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.
According to a company press release , the investment will serve to ‘improve internal energy generation, reduce emissions and waste, as well as ensure a reliable supply of steam for its industrial operations.’
The three installed boilers have the capacity to produce 24 net tons of steam per hour, and will also reduce fuel consumption, as they use steel gases for their operation.
