New collaboration between Fives and Trimet

Fives Aluminium New collaboration with Trimet Janv18 2-FIVES

As part of the modernization program in its Saint Jean de Maurienne smelter, which operates with one Anode Baking Furnace equipped with two Furnace Tending Assemblies supplied by ECL in 1978 and 1985, TRIMET renewed its confidence in Fives ECL with a double contract for the upgrade of one of the existing machines and the supply of a new ECL Furnace Tending Assembly.

This project aims at improving the operational performance of the Reduction, and within this contact, the anode size is changing. 

The Fives’ teams accompanied the customer for several months in order to define their needs and identify the best solutions in terms of cost performance ratio.

Fives will supply the latest generation of ECL Furnace Tending Assembly with new evolutions including visibility from the cabin and ease of maintenance.

This contract is following the ones received in November, 2016, for the supply of both two tapping and miscellaneous assemblies and a transfer gantry with retractable bumpers, as well as the revamping of four ECL Pot Tending Machines for which on-site works will start soon.
