Follow-up Order Received from China's Aluminum Industry

Siemens to Supply Process Control Systems for another Twelve Rolling Stands in Dingsheng

(PresseBox) (Linz, Austria, ) Siemens Metals Technologies has received orders from the Chinese company, Dingsheng Aluminium Co. Ltd., to supply new process control systems for a total of twelve rolling stands at the Zhenjiang and Hangzhou locations. The value of these orders exceeds ten million US dollars. These projects are scheduled to be completed by the middle of 2009. Siemens had previously equipped four aluminum rolling stands in Zhenjiang with new process technology in 2006.

Four of the new Siemens control systems will be installed in the Zhengjiang rolling mill by August 2008. A further eight are intended for the Hangzhou location, and are scheduled to come into operation by the middle of 2009. These new process control systems will not only contribute to the further improvement of the quality of the rolled products but also increase the productivity of the plants. One of the main reasons Siemens won this follow-up order was Dingsheng Aluminium's satisfaction with the control systems previously installed in Zhengjiang.

Dingsheng is the largest aluminum producer in Eastern China. The company operates two production facilities, one in Zhenjiang in Jiangsu Province and the other in Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The company produces not only sheets, strips, foils and coating materials but also finished products with a great processing depth for a wide range of applications. Its customers are in the domestic goods, electronics,communications and transport sectors, and the packaging and construction industries. This new Siemens technology will mainly be used in foil rolling mills.
