Nanjing Iron and Steel upgrades electric arc furnace with injector technology from SMS group

Nanjing Iron and Steel Co., Ltd., China, has placed an order with SMS group (www.sms-group.com) to supply new SMS group ConSo R6 injectors for the electric arc furnace No. 3 in Luhe, Nanjing. Erection and commissioning of the equipment are scheduled for 2019.

The main goal of the upgrade is to cope with the future reduction of hot metal by replacing it with scrap in the charge. For this purpose, efficient injector technology is required. Furthermore, the upgrade will reduce operating costs and increase productivity.

The injector design was developed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The new lightweight construction, ten percent lighter than previous version, is particularly easy to maintain.

The SMS group ConSo R6 water-cooled copper boxes in monoblock design are not susceptible to cracking and effectively prevent water leakage. The integrated flashback detection system allows continuous monitoring of the ConSo R6 injector. The injector, which can be operated in burner or oxygen injector mode, additionally provides for automatic management of the melting profiles, ensuring excellent efficiency.

The SMS group scope of supply includes three ConSo R6 injectors, water-cooled copper boxes, the respective valve stations, an integrated flashback detection system as well as supervision of the erection and commissioning activities.

Downside of e-mobility

What will be the drive of the future? Technical, political and emotional aspects often mix in the discussion on this question. Experts discuss the future role of the internal combustion engine at the "6th International Engine Congress" in Baden-Baden on 26 and 27 February 2019.

"Is driving a good or a bad thing to do?" This is the question asked by Professor Ulrich van Suntum, Director of the Institute of Spatial and Housing Economics at theUniversity of Münster. At the International Engine Congress 2019, he will present the discussion of emissions, particulate matter pollution and drive technologies of the future from an economic perspective, and also points to the downside of electromobility. His goal: "discussing the best technology – without ideologies".

In a preliminary interview with the VDI Wissensforum, van Suntum explains: "The costs and risks of electromobility are deliberately masked out by car opponents in order to put an end to the internal combustion engine. The electric car is by no means emission-free, as long as half of our electricity comes from gas and coal power plants. If you wanted to switch to electromobility with green electricity, we would either have to return to nuclear power or driving would simply be unaffordable."

In his opinion, neither politics nor the economy decide on the future type of drive, whether it is fuel cells or even hybrid solutions made of several types of drives.

For Wolfgang Maus, too, both drive types are justified in terms of functionality, economy and fulfilment of environmental requirements. "In our industry, we should not engage in pros and cons of e-mobility or combustion engines without reliable data," says Maus. He is one of the leading emission experts and managing director of WM Engineering & Consulting (Bergisch-Gladbach). In his preliminary interview, he gives an outlook on current political developments, which will also characterize the International Engine Congress 2019 in Baden-Baden.

The International Engine Congress 2019, organized by the VDI Wissensforum and ATZlive, is once again based on three thematic pillars: car and commercial vehicle engine technology and innovative alternative fuels. This creates a special technical and thematic depth. The aim is to focus on the overall engine system and to exploit synergies for drive development.

Important note for press representatives!
Experts will also be discussing the future of the combustion engine at the exclusive press conference this year. The press conference will take place on 26 February 2019. Further information will follow shortly. For accreditation.

US-Stromnetze weiter im Fokus von Hackern

In den letzten Jahren gab es weltweit immer wieder Cyberangriffe auf wichtige Infrastrukturen – besonders das Stromnetz scheint es vielen Hackern angetan zu haben. Denn das bietet immenses Schadenspotenzial und lässt sich sowohl wirtschaftlich als auch politisch als Druckmittel einsetzen. Nach den massiven Eingriffen durch mutmaßlich russische Hackergruppen in das ukrainische Stromnetz 2015 und 2016 stehen nun die USA im Fokus der Hackerangriffe. Doch im Gegensatz zu den großflächigen Blackouts in Osteuropa praktizieren die Angreifer dort eher eine Strategie der vielen Nadelstiche, wie die Sicherheitsexperten des amerikanischen Unternehmens FireEye berichten. Für die Stromversorger in den USA heißt das, dass sie sich in ständiger Alarmbereitschaft befinden müssen.

Wie die Sicherheitsforscher auf dem diese Woche stattfindenden CyberwarCon-Forum in Washington berichten, steckt hinter den kontinuierlichen Angriffen eine russische Gruppe namens TEMP.Isotope, die aber auch unter den Namen Dragonfly 2.0 und Energetic Bear bekannt ist. Die Hacker nutzen für ihre Strategie hauptsächlich herkömmliche Hackingtools, die sie wie einen Baukasten auf ihre Bedürfnisse anpassen. Das verringert zum einen den Aufwand für die Attacken und macht es zum anderen schwerer, die Hintermänner zu finden, da es kaum persönliche Signaturen im Code gibt. Bei ihren Aktionen geht die Gruppe äußerst geschickt vor, denn durch die vielen kleineren Attacken gewinnt sie Erkenntnisse über die Stärken und Schwächen der US-Stromversorgung, kreiert ein Bedrohungsszenario und frustriert damit die Opfer. Bei diesen wiederum handelt es sich um kleinere Sub-Unternehmen, die nicht im gleichen Maße abgesichert sind wie die großen amerikanischen Stromversorger.

Dieses Vorgehen ist überaus geschickt, denn nach großflächigen und langanhaltenden Stromausfällen im Nordwesten der USA im Jahr 2003 haben die Stromversorger in den USA einen Katalog mit Sicherungsmaßnahmen sowohl gegen Naturkatastrophen als auch gegen feindliche Angriffe erarbeitet und umgesetzt. Dazu gehören auch Best-Practice-Beispiele für die Cybersicherheit, wie Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung, Netzwerksegmentierung, Schutzmaßnahmen für die Datenspeicherung sowie eine strenge Überwachung der Zugangsberechtigungen im Netzwerk. Unter dem etwas sperrigen Namen North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection, kurz NERC CIP, sorgt der Maßnahmenkatalog bei den großen Stromnetzbetreibern für ein sehr hohes Maß an Sicherheit. Allerdings werden längst nicht alle Bereiche der Stromversorgung so gut geschützt, beispielsweise, wenn mit kleinen, lokalen Subunternehmen zusammengearbeitet wird. Genau diese Schwachstellen des insgesamt recht stabilen Systems nehmen sich die TEMP.Isotope-Hacker vor und sorgen so zwar nicht für das ganz große Chaos, aber doch für schmerzhafte Stiche.

Und wie sieht es hierzulande aus? Der Stromausfall rund um Münster vor wenigen Jahren hat einen Ausblick auf die Zustände gegeben, die auch in Deutschland drohen, sollte es zu einem großen und längeren Blackout kommen. Gerade erst warnte das Bundesamt für Bevölkerungsschutz vor den Folgen eines solchen Ereignisses. Kein Wunder – immerhin sind wir in unserer modernen Welt vom Strom komplett abhängig. Kühlschrank, Licht, Herd, Boiler, Telekommunikation – all diese Errungenschaften funktionieren ohne Strom nicht mehr. Umso wichtiger ist es, sich gegen vermeidbare Risiken wie Angriffe von außen so wirksam wie möglich zu schützen, sowohl technisch als auch auf der menschlichen Seite.

Battery Metals Report 2019: New and relevant information for download

The electrorevolution is gaining momentum. Without lithium-ion batteries and vanadium redox batteries, however, nothing moves. The necessary metals lithium, cobalt and vanadium are either scarce or difficult to recover. The Battery Metals Report 2019 provides current information on demand, price development and investment opportunities for the most important battery metals lithium, cobalt and vanadium.

Commodities are indispensable for the development of industry and technology worldwide, which makes them a sought-after commodity. The mining and commodities experts at Swiss Resource Capital AG regularly prepare special reports on the precious metals gold, silver, platinum and palladium, the battery metals lithium, cobalt and vanadium as well as on uranium.

Currently the new Battery Metals Report 2019 is available for free download: https://www.resource-capital.ch/en/reports/view/battery-metals-report-2019.html. It contains comprehensive information on the properties, use and promotion of the most important battery metals and also outlines future prospects: Lithium and cobalt are indispensable for the production of lithium-ion batteries, without which no pure electric vehicle can move. Vanadium in turn finds its way into decentralised storage facilities, which can store excess energy from regenerative energy generators such as wind farms or photovoltaic plants and thus make a part of the base load capable.

In addition, the report provides insightful interviews with experts and executives from the industry. The presentation of a number of interesting companies that are suitable for speculation on rising battery metal prices completes the report.

Further strong growth at DEUTZ

  • Significant rise in new orders
  • Double-digit increase in revenue and significantly improved EBIT margin
  • DEUTZ focuses efforts on growth in China
  • Implementation of E-DEUTZ strategy continues to gather momentum

DEUTZ AG has today published its consolidated financial results for the first three quarters of 2018. New orders rose from €1,173.8 million to €1,548.7 million, an increase of 31.9 per cent. In the third quarter of 2018, new orders were up by 22.0 per cent to €452.2 million (Q3 2017: €370.8 million).

The unit sales figure for the nine-month period was 156,504 engines, including 8,977 electric motors sold under the Torqeedo brand. This equates to an increase of 32.3 per cent compared with unit sales in the prior-year period (Q1–Q3 2017: 118,279 engines). Revenue advanced from €1,093.2 million to €1,297.3 million, a rise of 18.7 per cent. In the third quarter, revenue was up by a substantial 17.0 per cent to €419.7 million (Q3 2017: €358.7 million).

Operating profit (EBIT before exceptional items) amounted to €45.9 million in the first three quarters of the year (Q1–Q3 2017 €26.7 million). Adjusted for effects on earnings in connection with the DEUTZ Dalian joint venture, it stood at €60.3 million. Operating profit thus improved at a significantly faster rate than revenue, despite the strike at one of the Company’s suppliers. Consequently, the EBIT margin (before exceptional items) improved to 4.6 per cent after adjusting for the temporary drag on earnings resulting from DEUTZ Dalian and to 3.5 per cent before adjustment for this drag on earnings (Q1–Q3 2017: 2.4 per cent). In the third quarter of 2018, the EBIT margin was 3.0 per cent (Q3 2017: 1.4 per cent).

“The strike at a supplier put a great deal of strain on management and staff at our Company,” says the Chairman of the DEUTZ Board of Management, Dr Ing Frank Hiller. “This makes our substantial revenue growth, to which all regions and segments contributed, and our significant increase in operating profit all the more pleasing. We took further important steps that are aimed at securing growth in the future. We have also succeeded in further expanding our licensing business in China and are making good progress with the implementation of our EDEUTZ strategy.”

In the Chinese market, DEUTZ plans to generally reorganise its presence so that it can generate stronger growth and be even more successful there. As previously announced, DEUTZ signed contracts for the sale of the former DEUTZ Dalian joint venture to its former partner FAW in October 2018. The Company is also currently in talks about entering into new alliances with major local partners in the construction equipment and agricultural machinery industries.

Our E-DEUTZ strategy, introduced in 2017, is continuing to gather momentum. Demonstrating fully working operational systems during the ELECTRIP Event Week was the best way to prove our expertise in this field. An interdisciplinary team of Torqeedo and DEUTZ design engineers succeeded in integrating our drive concept into two prototype machines in just six months. This shows that DEUTZ has mastered the technology and is in a position to supply marketable electrification solutions.

For 2018 as a whole, DEUTZ (assuming no further supply shortage) expects revenue to rise sharply to more than €1.6 billion. The EBIT margin (before exceptional items) is forecast to improve to at least 4.5 per cent.

eMobility-Pioniere bringen Unternehmen auf die Überholspur

Die Diskussion rund um das Ende des Dieselantriebs rückt die Elektromobilität mehr denn je ins Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit. Dabei wird vor allem eines sichtbar: Die Zukunft des Elektroantriebs hängt nicht allein von der Entwicklung neuer Fahrzeuge ab. Auch die damit verbundene Infrastruktur und Serviceleistungen, wie ultraschnelle Ladestationen oder einfache Abrechnungssysteme für Firmenflotten, tragen einen maßgeblichen Beitrag dazu bei.

Gleich mehrere Unternehmen aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum sind bei der Entwicklung dieser begleitenden Maßnahmen federführend beteiligt. Eine neue Konferenz mit dem Titel »be.connected« bietet, am 15. und 16. November in der Ziegelei 10 in Ismaning bei München, eine einzigartige Plattform, auf der sich Entscheider und leitende Angestellte aus Unternehmen von den eMobilityPionieren der Branche, in praxisnahen Vorträgen, für die Einführung von Elektromobilität schulen lassen können.

Elektromobilität bedeutet mehr, als E-Autos und E-Ladestationen zu kaufen

„Wir stellen fest, dass immer mehr große Unternehmen die Bedeutung von Elektromobilität begreifen und in das Thema einsteigen wollen. Allerdings fehlt den zuständigen Entscheidern oft das umfassende Know-how für einen strategischen Einsatz und erfolgreiche Geschäftsmodelle. Hier wollen wir mit der Konferenz ansetzen“, betont Martin Klässner, CEO von has·to·be und Initiator der Veranstaltung. In praxisnahen Vorträgen führt man den Teilnehmern vor Augen, worauf es bei der Einführung einer Infrastruktur von Elektromobilität für Unternehmen ankommt und schärft zugleich das Bewusstsein für aktuelle Herausforderungen.

Von der DSGVO zum europäischen E-Ladestationsnetz

Zu den „heißen Eisen“ der Branche zählt derzeit das Eichrecht, das deutschlandweit einheitliche Standards für E-Ladestationen vorschreibt. Aber auch die Folgen der Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO) beschäftigen E-Ladestationsbetreiber und Mobilitätsserviceprovider. Ein Highlight der Konferenz ist der Auftritt von IONITY-CEO Dr. Michael Hajesch. Das Joint Venture der führenden Automobilhersteller arbeitet daran, ein europaweites Netz an High-Charger-Ladestationen aufzubauen und verleiht damit der Elektromobilität Flügel.

Die Konferenz findet am 15. und 16. November in der Ziegelei 101 in Ismaning bei München statt. Tickets sind auf der Webseite https://be.connected-conference.com/ erhältlich.

Research in Central and Eastern Europe: networks for automotive Innovation

– Universities in Central and Eastern Europe are working on ambitious projects for the future’s mobillity
– CEEPUS: the education network of the region presents "AutoAuto" as a platform for joint research on autonomous driving
– edubiz Symposium at the Automotive Hungary in Budapest :: Exploitation of experience and matchmaking with the industry

Through their universities, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe are positioning themselves in the new value-added chains of global automobile production. The educational network CEEPUS, which includes 15 countries in the region, is seeking intensive communication with the international automotive industry for ambitious research and development projects at universities. In the automotive trade fair "Automotive Hungary" from 17 to 18 October 2018, edubiz will be presenting the CEEPUS initiative "AutoAuto" and selected projects on the future of mobility.

Central and Eastern Europe has become a hub for the global automotive industry. Only in the four countries of Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary, German manufacturers produced almost 1.7 million vehicles in 2017 – almost 17 percent of total German production abroad. The countries of the region want to reposition themselves to the changes in the value chains, which are emerging with electric mobility, the networking of vehicles and autonomous driving, to avoid a role as an "extended workbench". "Hungary wants to be an innovation hub for the automotive industry. For this we have all the skills in the country, "says Prof. László Palkovics, Hungary’s Minister of Innovation and Technology. Palkovics opens an international keynote conference on October 17, 2018 at the country’s most important automotive trade fair, Automotive Hungary. Representatives of OEMs, suppliers and research will talk about "Innovation – the driving force behind the automotive industry".

In Budapest, therefore, the educational network CEEPUS seeks dialogue with the international automotive industry. It has also invited the universities, which are working on research projects on the future of the vehicle and mobility throughout the region, to Budapest to attend the conference and take advantage of networking opportunities with industry. "We want the impulses coming from research and teaching in the region to reach the industrial companies very quickly," says Elisabeth Sorantin, CEEPUS’ secretary-general. The dialogue format edubiz, which took place in Budapest for the first time in 2017, aims to stimulate the exchange and networking between the education sector and companies.

AutoAuto: a research network for autonomous driving

Already on October 16, 2018, a transnational coordination meeting of the CEEPUS network "AutoAuto" will take place in Budapest. Its focus is in the field of artificial intelligence and autonomous driving. "We expect an expanded potential for innovation through closer and cross-border coordinated cooperation of the various subprojects", Elisabeth Sorantin describes the initiative.

AutoAuto’s partners currently include the coordinating University of Maribor, Graz University of Technology, Budapest BME, ELTE, the University of Montenegro, universities in Gliwice, Poznan and Krakow, as well as Novi Sad, Lubljana and Zagreb. The coordination of research projects should also accelerate the transfer of knowledge into teaching and in the respective "ecosystems" of the industry. All partners of the network already cultivate intensive cooperation with each other and are involved in European research and funding projects. CEEPUS also wants to support the academic and personal exchange between the individual universities.

edubiz: Dialogue between education sector and companies

The implementation of the conference and matchmaking format edubiz in Budapest is a joint initiative of CEEPUS and the Stuttgart-based media company local global. In Germany, local global has organized edubiz events in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe since 2010. Themes were each time the resources that the education sector can provide for the international growth of companies. For 2019, partners are planning an edubiz premiere at the world’s leading trade fair for production technology, the Hannover Messe.

Automotive Hungary is a trade fair of Hungexpo in Budapest with over 200 exhibitors from 10 countries and around 10,000 trade visitors. One highlight of the trade fair is "Automotive – Techtogether" – a technical "hackathon" in which students will develop projects during the three fair’s days and present them to a specialist’s jury.
