The project is introduced at the Sheet rolling shop #2. If implemented, it will allow cutting energy expenses by at least 20 million rubles a year.
Within the framework of the project, current consumption of natural gas, electric power, reused, drinking and chemically treated water, vapor and heat energy will be studied. The project team will determine factors, which affect energy consumption, and develop technical measures and procedures to decrease energy expenditures involved in rolled steel production in the sheet rolling shop #2.
This project is carried out under the supervision of The energy saving and automation systems center jointly with experts of the sheet rolling shop # 2 and The Mechanization and Automation Management Department, without any outside help.
The project is expected for completion in the first half of 2005. Following that, similar projects will be carried out in other company units.
