PORT OF SANTANDER: 

Located on the north coast of Spain, the Port of Santander is strategically located  to ensure a commercial relationship with the Atlantic side of Europe and the rest of the world. It is easily accessible not only by road, from all its border areas, but also by train, which services r all the quays. Communications on the new quays in the Raos area are excellent due to the size of the quays

The port also has a passenger’s terminal with two quays located in the center of the town, where ferries and cruise liners can berth just metres from the commercial area, which  passengers can explore on foot.

The dry bulk mineral cargo terminal in Port of Santander is the only completely indoor terminal in the world. All processes are computerized using state of the art equipment and the terminal ensures high performance with minimal emissions into the atmosphere. With a storage capacity of 300.000 t (412.000 m3), it can unload[AT1]  20.000 t/day.

Another new terminal at the  port is used for agriculture and food bulk cargo, designed with the latest unloading, storage and handling systems for agricultural and food products, able to ensure the traceability of goods without reducing performance and therefore guaranteeing the optimization of costs at high quality levels. It has an indoor storage capacity of 102.600t.

Since 1983, the chemical products terminal at the Port of Santander has offered an unbeatable service in the distribution of bio fuels, products derived from petrol, oils, additives, etc. along the north Atlantic coast of Spain and the south east of France. Their 66 tanks lead to a storage capacity of 90.300 m3.

Regarding general goods, there are four quays at the Port of Santander, all with a depth of 13m, and Margen Norte (with a depth of 9,5m), all of which are especially equipped for handling general goods. Each quay has a double rail service and direct links to the motorway network, which means that goods can be quickly sent on to their destination. In total, there are 300 m2 for the loading, unloading, transporting and multi-modal transferring of general goods. The appropriate equipment for handling all kinds of goods, including goods in containers, as well as the Port Community’s experience and high level of specialization, enable the Port of Santander to act as a center for the distribution of tubes, wire rods and other iron and steel products, wood, wind equipment, etc.

Aware of the need to optimize the distribution of goods in its back country - the plateau region or Meseta and the Ebro Valley-, to achieve competitive positioning in this area and to better understand its customers, the Port of Santander is a shareholder in two dry ports. These centers for consolidating cargo expand the Port of Santander's zone of activity  and add value to the services provided for goods, attracting a large number of agents in the sea and land transport fields, as well as forwarding agents and distributors.

 

 

FerroAtlántica Boo Plant, founded in 1913, is located in Cantabria, on the north coast of Spain, more specifically in the municipalities of Astillero and Camargo. The factory has a surface area of 174.000 m2. Originally, it was designed to manufacture calcium carbide and, after several improvements and expansions, Boo Plant currently produces only manganese alloys, specifically standard Ferromanganese (HC), standard Silicomanganese and medium carbon Ferromanganese (MC), used as deoxidizer, desulphurizer  in order to provide steel hardness, ductility and abrasion strength.

It has an annual production capacity of 45.000 tons of standard Ferromanganese (HC FeMn), 115.000 tons of Silicomanganese (SiMn) and 12.000 tons of medium carbon Ferromanganese (MC FeMn). Average staff is around 170 employees and the plant creates roughly another 300 indirect jobs.

These manganese alloys are obtained by processes in which the manganese oxides contained in manganese ores are reduced in electric arc-resistance furnaces at high temperatures achieved by means of electric power. In the production of FeMn, slag with high manganese content is obtained. This slag is used in the SiMn production, replacing the use of mineral. That is the reason why FeMn and SiMn production is combined, to improve the efficiency of the whole process, and to reduce the ores and energy consumption

The main raw materials required in these processes are the following: manganese ores with low impurity levels; reductants such as metallurgical coke, petroleum coke or coal for HC FeMn and SiMn and SiMn for MC FeMn; fluxes like limestone or fluorspar that make it possible to obtain the desired slag as this collects impurities contained in the ores making them float on the melted metal; quartz as a silicon supplier for SiMn production. Soderberg paste is used in FeMn and SiMn production, and graphite electrodes are used in MC FeMn production.

FerroAtlántica Boo has four furnaces with an installed capacity of 20, 30 and 2x35 MVA for the production of both HC FeMn and SiMn indistinctly and one 3 MVA tilting furnace used to manufacture MC FeMn.

The casting is released from the furnace through  tapping holes. Each furnace has two tapping holes that are opened depending onp the requirements, to allow the metal and the slag to come out.    Tapping holes are opened using a drill. MC FeMn casting is achieved by tipping the furnace.

From the tapping hole, metal and slag go to a casting ladle where metal remains at the bottom because of its greater density; meanwhile the slag overflows and follows another runner to a slag path. Once the casting has finished, the slag that is still in the ladle is removed during a process that is called “skimming”. Finally, the ferroalloy is poured into the metal path where it is left to cool down and solidify.

Once the quality of these final products  is controlled, they are crushed, classified and stored according to different sizes and qualities before they are sold.

Boo Plant has continuously improved this process with the best available technology and protocols to optimize the management of different resources, guaranteeing the quality of its products and carefully respecting the safety of its workers  and the environment. 

 

Global Steel Wire, S.A. (GSW) is the CELSA GROUP Company engaged in manufacturing wire rod in an extensive range of steels and dimensions, which have been progressively expanded in order to be increasingly present in higher technology sectors.

GSW is located in Nueva Montaña, nearby Santander.With a production capacity of 1.000.000 t of different grades of steel, nearly 600 employees and a turnover of about 750 million euros, is the third largest company in Cantabria. Their products are: medium and high carbon wire rod, wire rod for suspension springs, low carbon wire rod, wire rod for tire reinforcement, wire rod for welding, wire rod for cold heading, free cutting and cold drawing steels and case-hardening steel.

GSW manufactures steel by recycling scrap as its basic raw material, together with sponge iron pellets and ferroalloys and synthetic slags, smelting them at a steel shop, made up of an electric furnace, to obtain a semi-product steel known as billets. The billets are then transformed by a rolling mill into a wide variety of different qualities of rod coils.These are used by customers to manufacture products such as wire, cords, cables, meshes, steel cords, springs, cold-pressed nuts and bolts or tire reinforcing.

GSW’s steel shop consists of three basic installations: an electrical furnace with a 140 MVA transformer with a capacity of 150 t, where raw materials are melted and the liquid steel is tapped using a casting system through the bottom; the ladle furnace, where the chemical composition of the steel is adjusted; and a continuous casting machine, where the steel is solidified and 180x180 mm2 billets are obtained.

Afterwards, inside the rolling mill, cross section square billets, heated in a water-cooled walking bean furnace with capacity of 170 t/h with bottom and top heating, are rolled down to 140-mm square cross-section billets. Theyare kept hot in a pusher furnace arranged to continue the rolling in a continuous wire rod mill with two standards: the first 11 passes are common, and starting from the intermediate mill, the two rolling strands are separated with a total of 4 knot twist shapers.

GSW has a Product and Processes Engineering Department, responsible for leading the R&D work carried out in the company, in close collaboration with their Production and Quality Departments.
