Client: ArcelorMittal

Location: Genk

Period: 2016

The specific request was to investigate the possible energy savings that would bring about a major renovation of the refrigeration plants. To this end, Sweco conducted a measurement campaign that gathered information about both electrical and thermal capacity. We also proposed an optimal control strategy that combines high operational exploitation security with minimal energy consumption.


« As a result of Sweco’s professional hands-on approach during the measurement campaign involving internal production and maintenance services, Sweco has developed a tailor-made control strategy that clearly ensures savings and helps us in ensuring the reliability of the installation. »
