In February Dniepropetrovsk Iron and Steel Works named after Dzerzhinsky produced 170.3 thousand tons of pig iron.
“On February 8, we put our blast furnace #2 into operation after an overhaul in October-December 2015. And we were below our plan of 224.5 thousand tons”, said the company in its statement.
DMKD also produced 302.6 thousand tons of sinter (against 392.1 thousand tons of the target). Instead of 224.5 thousand tons of steel the company produced 163.1 thousand tons due to the low pig iron output and lack of scrap.
Sales fell from the planned 220.9 thousand tons to 162.9 thousand tons.
In 2015 DMKD received 1.39 billion UAH of losses and 1868.35 million UAH of losses in 2014. (Ukrainian metal)
