Will provide automation and electrical technology for new tandem cold mill

ABB, a power and automation technology group, has won a $20 million order from Shandong Nanshan Aluminum to deliver electrical and automation solutions and engineering services for its new three-stand Tandem Cold Mill in Longkou, China.

The new mill will have an annual production capacity of 400,000 metric tons of aluminum coils that will be used to make aluminum cans.

Scheduled to start operation in 2012, the mill will significantly expand Nanshan's production capacity, to more than 400,000 tons of aluminum per year. The new mill is the first of its kind ever delivered in China.

The greenfield mill at Longkou is one of several projects that ABB has delivered for Nanshan Group, including automation and electrical systems for two cold rolling mills in 2003 for the first major expansion of their aluminum production capacity.
