Sansteel Group chooses GE Fanuc for $300,000 plant utility system

Sansteel Group Corporation has chosen GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’ process control system, Proficy Process Systems, for a furnace revamp project in Shanghai.

The solution, which is valued at approximately $300,000, will provide critical control for both the metal furnace and the plant utility system, which currently includes GE Fanuc’s PACSystems RX3i controller.

Sansteel is a leading steelmaker in China, focusing on the production of hi-tech and high value-added premium steel, with an annual production capacity more than five million tonnes. According to a press release from GE Fanuc, the company believes that using Proficy Process Systems as the core of the revamp project will reduce the cost of the revamp by 25 per cent compared to traditional systems.

“GE Fanuc continues its strategic drive and expansion in the Process automation space,” said GE Fanuc process and safety business general manager, Steve Ryan.

“This win highlights not only the technical capabilities of our solutions, but the fact that customers around the globe are benefiting from them.”

Proficy Process Systems is a fully-integrated process control system that, based on its flexible configuration, architecture and choice of controller platforms, can address the needs of customers in different industries through the ability to choose either the PAC8000 controllers or PACSystems controllers, according to GE Fanuc product manager, Kam Yuen.

“These systems will improve operational performance and productivity and provide customers with a sustainable advantage for their business.”
