Baowu Adds Half A Million Tons Electric Steel Capacity
Baosteel Group, a subsidiary of China Baowu Steel Group, has announced the full production launch of its non oriented silicon steel product structure optimization project for new energy vehicles. The project has an estimated annual production capacity of 500,000 metric tons and is the only high grade non-oriented silicon steel professional production line for the new energy vehicle industry in China.
The highly automated, intelligent, and unmanned production line utilizes cloud, big data, AI, and other technologies to realize cloud big data applications and full process control. With this launch, the annual output of Baosteel's silicon steel products will reach 4 million metric tons, with the annual production capacity of high-grade non-oriented silicon steel exceeding 1 million metric tons.
Non-oriented silicon steel is a crucial material used in the manufacturing of electric motors, which are an essential component in new energy vehicles. By producing high-grade non-oriented silicon steel, Baosteel Group aims to meet the growing demand for new energy vehicles in China, which has become the world's largest market for electric cars.
The production line's full operation will also improve the overall quality and production efficiency of non-oriented silicon steel in China, providing a significant boost to the country's new energy vehicle industry. Baosteel Group's investment in this project reflects its commitment to sustainable development and the advancement of China's green energy sector.
