The waste-metal treatment facility in Cyclife Sweden has restarted its melting operations early January 2021 and is planned to be back at full capacity in the second quarter of 2021 as new equipment will be set up in the beginning of 2021 in the large component cutting and treatment hall. The melting facility applies chemical and mechanical decontamination process for scrap metal and large components up to 30 meters length and 400 tons. Their metallurgical nature can be ferrous and non-ferrous (aluminium, copper, lead and special alloys).
The restart decision was officially communicated to Cyclife Sweden by the Swedish Nuclear Safety Authority on 17 November 2020, stressing the quality of all technical and safety optimizations that were performed in 2020, in particular ventilation and fire detection systems and processes. Since 18 December 2020, the facility has been running with limited capacity.
“I would like to congratulate the fantastic work achieved by the whole Cyclife Sweden team to make the facility up and running again in such a short time. Work has been very intense and we should be proud to see how our newly installed gas stirring system performs.” commented Ralf Norén, Managing director of Cyclife Sweden AB.
