Steel-making enterprise “Elektrostal” (Donetsk region) in 2020 practically kept the output of continuously cast billets at the level of the previous year – up to 84 thousand tons.
As a representative of Elektrostal told Interfax-Ukraine, the plant was idle in December, while 2,000 tons of products were produced in November, and 10,000 tons in October.
At the same time he recalled that from January to mid-March 2019, the enterprise was completely idle and partially resumed work from mid-March 2020, after which it worked at a third of its capacity or less.
As reported, in 2019, the production of continuously cast billets at Elektrostal decreased by 3.5 times compared to 2018 – to 83 thousand tons from 289 thousand tons.
Since 2000, the Donetsk Metal Rolling Plant (DMPZ) began to experience a shortage of purchased steel billets for its own rolling production, as a result of which it was decided to build a steel-making enterprise – “Elektrostal”.
DMPZ specializes in the production and sale of metal products: long products, cast iron pipes, structural elements of ferrous metals, nuts and shovels.
