Genios contract for Nordural

Genios is a pioneering technology for metal stirring, submerging and casting.

An electromagnetic stirring solution for Nordural

Century Aluminium awarded Fives with a contract to supply Genios, the latest generation of Electromagnetic Stirring Technology, at their Nordural smelter in Iceland.

The equipment will be installed on a 60-ton Holding Furnace that was supplied by Solios Thermal in 2006.

Nordural selected Genios electromagnetic stirring technology for its safe and reliable stirring capabilities, its low energy consumption and its ease of installation on existing furnaces.

As a reminder, Genios allows for stirring, submerging and casting, all in one single unit. This technology was awarded the Engineering Sustainability label by Fives in January 2014.
