First compact billet caster from Siemens goes operational in Armenia
Fast and low-cost construction with new plant design / Two-line casting plant produces 200,000 metric tons of billets per year
ASCE Group OJSC is the market leader in scrap recycling in Armenia and runs an electric arc furnace-based minimill melt shop in Charentsavan. The new billet caster has a machine radius of six meters and is designed to produce up to 200,000 metric tons of billets per year with a square cross-section of 120x120 millimeters on two strands. The strands can be operated independently of each other. The plant's capacity can therefore always be utilized to the best possible degree, depending on the available quantity of liquid steel. Both quality steel as well as low and medium carbon steel can be cast. The scope of supply included engineering, process turnkey equipment and basic automation as well as the operator control and monitoring system together. Siemens was also responsible for installation and commissioning supervision. The billets produced at the Charentsavan plant are processed further to make structural steel in a bar mill, also supplied by Siemens.
