SYS partners with Vetta to implement Viridis Performance in Rayong

SYS, a leading producer of hot-rolled construction steel in Thailand, has partnered with Vetta, the Brazilian subsidiary of SMS group, to implement the Viridis Performance system in its production facilities in Rayong. By using advanced AI models, this technology analyzes real-time data to reduce energy consumption without compromising production performance.

SYS Improves Energy Efficiency in Warm Rolling Mills with Viridis Performance

SYS operates two hot rolling mills in Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate and WHA Eastern Industrial Estate (Map Ta Phut), with a total production capacity of 1.1 million tons per year. The Viridis Suite, including Viridis Performance, aims to improve energy efficiency in these mills. The system enables real-time monitoring of relevant energy consumption variables such as electricity and natural gas, providing specialized dashboards that display real-time data and set values. Operators can quickly respond to any deviations, ensuring optimal performance and energy savings.

SYS demonstrates commitment to sustainability with use of recycled steel

The Map Ta Phut facility of SYS demonstrates its commitment to sustainability through the use of an electric arc furnace that exclusively utilizes recycled steel raw materials. Equipped with a state-of-the-art chemical composition control system, this furnace enables the production of high-quality semi-finished and finished products such as wide flange beams, I-profiles, and U-profiles.

Reliable data processing and metallurgical expertise combined for steel production efficiency

The Viridis solution, integrated into the new CoE Solutions X business unit of SMS group, combines reliable data processing with comprehensive metallurgical knowledge. This area brings together electrical & automation, service, and digitalization to enable maximum efficiency and economic viability in steel production.
