ArcelorMittal Duisburg to implement AI solution in steel production

  • Smart Steel Technologies applies "SST Temperature Optimization AI" for precise temperature control at ArcelorMittal Duisburg
  • ArcelorMittal Duisburg permanently saves on energy costs and increases process stability from BOF-steelmaking to continuous casting

Berlin, October 27, 2020 - ArcelorMittal Duisburg commissions the AI company Smart Steel Technolo- gies to introduce its software "SST Temperature Optimization AI" at its highly specialized steel plant. The software solution is integrated live in the production process and ensures precise temperature control from BOF to continuous casting. Process stability is also maximized across all stations. Thus, ArcelorMittal Duisburg minimizes temperature buffers and will lower the temperature in production, leading to permanent energy cost savings. reduced CO2 emission costs savings through increased process stability. Integration of the software will take three months. The project goal is achieved after a test and optimization phase of another three months. Hence, ArcelorMittal Duisburg will benefit from a significant cost reduction within a very short time.

"In an economically challenging situation, we consciously invest in the optimization of our temperature control using Artificial Intelligence technology. This will allow ArcelorMittal Duisburg to further increase process stability and reduce energy costs. The software is installed in a minimally invasive way. The installation effort is limited.", states Dr. Mathias Lüttenberg, Steel Plant Manager at ArcelorMittal Duisburg GmbH.
