AIC upgrades DC drives at El Garhy Steel in Egypt

Following projects in 2010 and 2011, based on the partnership since the 90s, El Garhy Steel contracted AIC to upgrade DC drives for the rolling mill in Egypt. The main purpose of the upgrade was to replace obsolete equipment with the new DC Drives to improve the performance of the rolling mill.

The rolling mill control system and all the drives have already been engineered and manufactured by AIC as the panels in the past. The scope of the supply included:
- Six new DC drive cabinets suited to drive mill stands
- Software development and upgrade of PLC Software. Programming for energy consumptions on working shifts will be implemented in existing logic for all stand drives
- Upgrade of HMI system through new SCADA screens dedicated to the supervision of the status of new drives / stands and energy consumptions
- Packing and shipping

AIC was also involved in site installation and commissioning phases, start up support and the remote assistance. The project was completed in September 2020.
