Alchevsk Iron and Steel Works has started blowing two blast furnaces. In 10-15 days it plans to reach May daily output.
Because of the AMK work, Dneprovsky Iron and Steel Works will put its third blast furnace into operation.
Alchevsk Works had to shut down its BF No. 5 because of the electricity cut off from June 22. On June 1-13 the company was idle due to the lack of raw materials caused by the railroad strike. (Ukrainian metal)
