Russian steelmaker OJSC Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works (MMK) claims that a number of its production facilities and plants set local records last year.
According to the company, it achieved record production of cast iron in its eight blast furnaces, producing 10.28Mt and its steelmaking plant demonstrated its best results since 2007 and its second best since 1991 (output of 13.03Mt). The company’s oxygen converter plant also achieved record results, according to MMK, producing over 10Mt of steel, it’s highest output since 2007.
MMK claims that its coke-chemical plant produced ‘approximately 5.6Mt of coke in 2014, it’s highest recorded volume since 2004 and its second best result ever.
The company’s long products division was also breaking production history. For the first time since Italy’s Danieli commissioned its new rolling mills in 2005, it produced over 1.84Mt of hot-rolled products.
MMK’s three state-of-the-art rolling mills are currently loaded and supply high-quality long products to MMK-Metiz and the construction sector.
