Germany based Siemens has bagged an order to supply a 35-tonne vacuum de-gassing plant to Jailaxmi Casting and Alloys at its unit in Aurangabad.

The contract has been awarded to the group’s subsidiary Siemens VAI Metals Technologies for setting up the plant, which is expected to be commissioned by 2012-end, a company release here said.

The new de-gassing plant will be able to process around 1.1 lakh tonne of liquid steel every year.

“Siemens will design and supply the entire mechanical and electrical equipment for the vacuum de-gassing plant. This includes the vacuum tank, cover structure, including a simplified lifting device for the shop crane, the gas cooler and vacuum filter. The plant will be driven by a mechanical vacuum pump,” the release said.

Jailaxmi Casting and Alloys, which runs a mini mill melt shop in Aurangabad, has been producing special and alloy billets and bars for the automotive industry and the regional construction industry.
