Steel Plant Saves 25 million kWh Per Year with Better Fans
ProcessBarron retrofitted four 2,750-hp fans that draft heavy dust-laden gases from an electric arc furnace to a baghouse for air pollution control at the Severstal steel plant in Columbus, Miss. These retrofits have helped the Severstal plant achieve over 25 million kWh per year in energy savings and reduced the plant’s electric arc furnace energy costs by $0.70 per ton, qualifying it for the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Major Industrial Program.
The Tennessee Valley Authority, along with the state of Mississippi, awarded Severstal more than $2.5 million for the plant’s reduction in electricity consumption in October 2013.
