In June Dneprovsky Iron and Steel Works failed the output targets again.
According to the company statement, output targets and results depended on the raw materials availability, but the coke shortage resulted in the failure.
Since late June coke has been delivered from Alchevsk Coke, Yevraz Yuzhkoks and Dneprokoks, but that was not enough to fully load two blast furnaces. Coke shortages in June amounted to 17 thousand tons. This resulted in the underproduction of sinter (90 thousand tons), pipes (2.8 thousand tons) and steel (70 thousand tons). (Ukrainian metal)
