MidUral Group is shutting down its operation for a scheduled and preventive repair a month earlier.
Klyuchevsky Ferroalloys Works and Russkiy Chrome 1915 simultaneously stopped manufacturing chromium oxide, chromium anhydride, metallic chromium, ferrochromium and other ferroalloys on August 19.
The repair, which started earlier than planned, will last for some three weeks.
According to the chairman Sergey Gilvarg, the decrease in output will help stabilize the chromium market. (Ukrainian metal)
