Cogne Acciai Speciali chooses AIC to upgrade the finishing area in Aosta, Italy.

Automazioni Industriali Capitanio has been contracted by Cogne Acciai Speciali (Aosta, Italy) for the second and final step of the design and implementation of a safety system for the finishing area of Wire rod & Garrett lines.

The project follows the first part of the cooperation between the companies based on a detailed risk analysis performed during the last year with the technical support of the Italian company NECSI, specialized in health & safety services.
The new project aims to implement all the safety improvements previously identified and, in the meantime, to completely upgrade the PLC and HMI control systems of the finishing area for both Wire rod and Garrett line.

The scope of supply will include:
- upgrade of the existing automation & control system replacing the obsolete S5 controllers with Siemens S7-1500 PLC;
- design, manufacturing, supply, electrical erection and commissioning of the new safety and PLC control cabinets;
- revamping of network interfaces and the communication between new PLC and existing control PLCs of Mill and WTP; etc.

The commissioning will be performed during the next summer shutdown in August 2020.
