Korea Herald reported that South Korean steelmaker POSCO has completed the restoration and started normal operations of all 17 rolling mills at Pohang steelworks, which are responsible for more than one-third of POSCO’s 13.5 million tonnes of steel products produced annually, on January 20, 135 days after flooding caused by super typhoon Hinnamnor, which hit the east coast of the Korean peninsula on 6 September 2022. A day after the typhoon hit, POSCO halted all operations at the steel mill, a first since the factory was established in 1973, as storms and heavy rains submerged the POSCO's facilities underwater. POSCO has attributed its quick recovery from the storm to its some 1.4 million employees' combined efforts to carry out the maintenance work. POSCO said “Domestic and foreign experts had asserted that it was impossible to repair the main motors for steel rolling machines, which weigh 170 tonnes, within a year. But employees dismantled, washed, and assembled the machines themselves, in a bid to accelerate the recovery process.” POSCO further attributed the quick recovery of its damaged plants to its collaboration with global companies including JSW Steel. With POSCO especially in need of motor drives that provide electricity to the mills after 11 out of 15 motor drives had been damaged by the storm, POSCO said JSW had provided the motors necessary equipment to POSCO to expedite the recovery. POSCO further said governmental bodies such as the National Fire Agency and local governments helped, as they provided large-capacity hydro pumps, firefighting pumps and sprinklers while providing the military forces, including the Marine Corps, to help restore its mills.
