Electric steelmaking complex Interpipe Steel of the international vertically integrated pipe and wheel company Interpipe (Dnipro) in January-October this year increased steel production, according to recent data, by 23.9% compared to the same period last year, to 793,000 tonnes.
As the company told Interfax-Ukraine, 63,000 tonnes of steel were produced in October, while in September – 97,000 tonnes.
According to the information of the enterprise, the reason for a decrease in production volumes was the annual overhaul, which ended on November 1 after 12 days of repair work.
“In addition to traditional replacements of parts and assemblies, which are carried out regularly or periodically in each overhaul, during this time, five sections of a water-cooled gas duct, a bearing on an arc steel-making furnace, and technological axes were set on both continuous casting machines. We have completed all the planned work in full,” the company said in a statement.
Interpipe is a Ukrainian industrial company, a manufacturer of seamless pipes and railway wheels. The company’s products are supplied to more than 80 countries of the world through a network of sales offices located in the key markets of the CIS, the Middle East, North America and Europe. In 2020, Interpipe sold 662,000 tonnes of finished products, including 192,000 tonnes of railway products. Sales of railway products are carried out under the KLW brand.
