Danieli Group: what is Q-ONE and how it works

Innovation and technology is what is leading Danieli Group in the challenging process towards a more sustainable steel production. Nowadays, the steel industry is facing a lot of pressure to reduce its carbon footprint and become more environmentally sustainable. Global leader in equipment, plants and services for the metal industry, the Italian company seems to be doing great in this game. Among their latest, and greatest, creations is Q-ONE, a digital power feeder that enables steel producers to optimize their operations, increase efficiency and reduce costs. Based on advanced digital power electronics that provide precise control and a smooth melting process, the technology enables clients to make informed decisions and respond to changes more quickly. One of the most interesting qualities is the fact that it is compatible with renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. This means that, in addition to being an efficient solution, it is also a sustainable and environmentally friendly one. Danieli Group has recently released a video that explains how Q-ONE technology works and why it will be a game-changer for the future of steel industry. The video features interviews with Danieli experts and valuable insights into the company’s technologies and innovations.

Danieli Group’s slogan: “Small investments Big results”

Q-ONE promises a fast return on investment, estimated at 9 to 24 months, which comes with a long list of benefits, including: overall process energy saving up to 15%; 15% reduction of electrode consumption; 10% reduction of Power-on time; extremely high speed control of voltage and current in the furnace; higher power factor thanks to a limited exchange of reactive power with MV network; very low network flicker due to real time control on the arc current variation; high reliability of Q-ONE equipment because of its design modularity. After all, “Small investments big results” is the slogan used by Danieli Group with its customers, which the company supports in the achievement of their goals of environmental sustainability, work safety and improved final product quality through technological innovation and quick returns on investments. The Italian company develops and standardizes high-quality technology packages that are proven to be financially and technically feasible, in terms of anticipated technological, ecological and economic benefits. As a plus, their packages can be installed both on Danieli plants and on most of the equipment supplied by others. Moreover, they respond to the current market’s requirements which now demand specific equipment upgrades instead of extensive greenfield installations. The packages are divided into two types: Plug & Play Tech Packages and Tailor-made Tech Packages. The first ones are structured to easily interface with existing automation, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical installation, with a short-term ROI. The second ones are engineered for executing major equipment upgrades with short-to-medium-term ROI and minimal plant downtime.
