Sault Ste Marie Ontario based Canadian producer of flat steel products Algoma Steel Group announced that a fire occurred on 7 August 2022, on one of its coal conveyors that supplies coal to two of its three coke batteries. No one was injured in this event. Algoma Steel’s President & Chief Executive Officer Mr Michael Garcia said “Our emergency response personnel, together with Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services, are to be commended for their quick action suppressing the blaze and containing damages without injury to any of our personnel.”Iron and steelmaking operations are expected to continue in the normal course while the damage is repaired, as the Company can continue to produce coke at a reduced rate and anticipates it has sufficient coke inventory and supply contracts for purchased coke to support steelmaking operations. The Company is continuing to assess the damage and complete repair plans.
