Integrated Steel Mill Energy Footprint Optimization

Client: ArcelorMittal Dofasco

Location: Hamilton, ON Canada

Perform a study to evaluate overall site energy usage and predict future plant energy footprint resulting from various changes to production and processes.  Develop project opportunities to reduce energy consumption and the use of purchased fuels.

  • Develop interactive model to compare plant wide energy requirements for various scenarios
  • Validate model based on previous year site data
  • Model used to evaluate options to:
    • Minimize purchased fuel (NG, Electricity, Oil)
    • Minimize flare
  • Optimizing the steam system (generation, distribution and use)
  • Develop recommendations for the best utilization of available energy sources
  • Identify project opportunities designed to reduce energy consumption and external fuel purchases
  • Evaluate viable option based on project readiness, ease of implementation, risk
  • Evaluate project economics
  • Order-of-magnitude CAPEX  / OPEX estimates
  • Annual savings
  • Project ROI / Payback
