Yenakievo Iron and Steel Works is facing complete halt because of Ukrzaliznytsia.
“EMZ that has just finished its blast furnace No. 5 repairs might not put into operation, and that’s some 45 thousand tons of pig iron or $20 million of revenues in November”, Ukrmetallurgprom chairman Alexander Kalenkov said.
According to him, the works is situated in the temporarily occupied territory, but has been reregistered in Ukraine and pays taxes to the state budget.
“The reason is the Ukrzaliznytsia operation. The works is dying without raw materials. And Ukrzaliznytsia doesn’t allow trains to pass”, he said.
“They should provide stable supplies of raw materials in the second half of November on the level of 14 thousand tons per day”, Kalenkov added. (Ukrainian metal)
