The steel-making enterprise “Elektrostal” (Donetsk region) stood idle in January of this year and did not produce continuously cast billets, whereas in January last year it smelted 3 thousand tons of products.
As a representative of Elektrostal told Interfax-Ukraine, the plant was also idle in December, while 2 thousand tons of products were smelted in November, and 10 thousand tons in October.
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 operated at a third of capacity or less.
As reported, in 2020, Elektrostal kept the output of continuously cast billets at the level of the previous year – 84 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 made of ferrous metals, nuts and shovels.
