In October 1996, twenty months after starting the constructions works, the first Compact Strip Plant in Europe, for production of hot rolled coils, entered into service in Sestao (Spain). Nowadays, this CSP is part of the ArcelorMittal’s conglomerate.

With a production capacity of 1 million tons/year, in the first stage, was extended to 1.6 million tons/year on 2002, incorporating in all the facilities concerning the productive process, from the steel works to the tension reels in the delivery area, electrical and automation equipment from Ingeteam Power Technology (at those days known as Ingelectric).

Additionally, previously, in 2001, Ingeteam Power Technology also obtained the order for a new 800.000 ton/year pickling link, increasing the added value to the black coils obtained in CSP facilities.

CSP® (Compact Strip Production) is a world's leading thin slab technology, developed by SMS group, in 1989. It has transformed the world of flat steel production for carbon steel due to high cost efficiency, a wide product variety and outstanding strip quality.

ArcelorMittal’s Sestao facilities are composed basically as follows:

  • 2x DC 130 tons Electric-Arc Furnaces, in the Melting Shop
  • 2x AC 130 tons Laddle Furnaces, 
  • Dedusting system for melting Shop,
  • Storage and additives system,
  • WTP, water treatment plant
  • 1x Casting platform
  • 2x Continuous casters (strands), vertical bending design; casting speed up to 6 m/min,
  • 1x Tunnel furnace,
  • Descaling prior to rolling,
  • 7x stands Hot strip mill, powered by synchronous motors, 7000 kW rated.
  • incorporating shifting and bending, by means of CVC technology (SMS),
  • 8x zones laminar cooling,
  • 2x coilers,
  • Storage and shipping facilities, incorporating tying and packaging,
  • Constructed in a later stage a 800.000 ton/year pickling line, complementary to the said facilities,

Ingeteam Power Technology developed the CSP’s automation in accordance with the functional requirements defined by SMS, resulting in a consistent and homogeneous equipment configuration in which overall plant and process control could be easily implemented across the two automation levels in a clear a coordinated way.
