Russian new service Interfax reported that ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih’s steel plant in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine is gradually restarting production, which was interrupted in March. The report says “Chief of the Dnipropetrovsk region's military administration Valentyn Reznychenko, chairman of the Dnipropetrovsk region's council Mykola Lukashuk and head of Kryvyi Rih's military administration Oleksandr Vilkul discussed the re launch of the metallurgical production process during a visit to the enterprise.”In early March 2022, the company's management decided to stop all blast furnaces and the metallurgical production process at the enterprise. The plant's byproduct coke production process is currently hot-idle, a forced measure, which helps avert irreparable damage to equipment. The operations of the company's mining department have not been suspended, but the volume of ore mining was reduced due to disruptions in logistic routes and the temporary shutdown of the blast furnaces. Since April, ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih has gradually been resuming its production processes, restarting its blast furnace no. 6 on 9 April as the first such step. Now reports say that one blast furnace, two coke-oven batteries, three casting machines, a rolling mill, and one of the facility's three continuous casting machines are currently operating at ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih.ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih is the largest manufacturer of rolled steel in Ukraine, specializing in the production of long-sized rolled steel, including rebar and rolled wire.
