The 1 millionth metric ton was melted just 15 months after the launch of the facility and 5 months after the melting of the 500,000th metric ton. Such a considerable increase in the production capacity has brought Interpipe Steel even closer to its designed capacity level.
In March the mill reached its designed monthly production capacity of 110,000 tons, while in June Interpipe Steel will come close to the mill’s designed quarterly output capacity level.
Currently Interpipe Steel ensures 90% of Interpipe facilities’ needs in pipe billets and 100% of needs in railway wheel billets. (SteelGuru)
