Evraz – Mill Electrical Construction Revamp

Westwood was awarded a multi-phase retrofit of the various mills in Evraz’s Regina Steelmaking Plant. We started this project in July of 2016 with a peak manpower of approximately 90 people. The scope included:

Demolition Works - Removal of existing equipment, wiring, conduit and tray for the Roughing Mill, Steckel Mill, Runout Table Cooling and Upcoiler areas.  

Installation Works - Electrical Installation and connection of the Roughing Mill, Steckel Mill, Runout Table Cooling and Upcoiler areas.

Activities included the setting and installation of all owner-supplied electrical equipment including switchgear, panels, transformers and cabinets. Westwood supplied and installed:

  • Grounding including all connection points.
  • Cable tray and fittings of multiple sizes.
  • Over 60,000m of power & control cables.
  • Light fixtures, receptacles, and welding receptacles.
  • Various equipment including;
    • Transformers.
    • Variable frequency drive cabinets.
    • MCC starters.
  • Startup and commissioning assistance.

This project included a 21 day – 24hr/day plant shutdown for the Roughing and Steckel Mill change over to the new equipment.  As well, the project finished with a 14 day outage for the removal of the existing Upcoiler and the upgrade requirements to the Run-Out Table Cooling Tables.
