Novelis to Increase Uptime Following ABB Modernization

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Novelis Inc., a leading sustainable aluminum solutions provider and the world leader in aluminum rolling and recycling, is working with ABB to upgrade its third-party drives and controls system as part of a brownfield modernization project at its hot rolling mill in Oswego, New York, USA.

To futureproof the mill, ABB is replacing obsolete and outdated equipment with new switchgears, transformers, medium voltage drives, medium voltage synchronous motors, motor control centers and auxiliary controls, all integrated with the facility's existing non-ABB control system. This will support Novelis' ambitions for increased power capacity and reliability. Commissioning of the upgrade is expected by the end of 2023.

The Oswego mill was the company's first US operation and is today the company's largest, wholly owned fabrication facility in North America. It produces high-quality aluminum sheet for the automotive, beverage can, and building and construction markets. Novelis is also the world's largest recycler of aluminum and seeks sustainability commitments from its supply chain as its customers look for environmentally friendly and circular aluminum products.

ABB medium voltage synchronous motors will help ensure the highest levels of availability for Novelis.
