Donetsk Electrometallurgical Plant

 

Donetsk, Ukraine

Donetsk Electrometallurgical Plant is one of Ukraine’s most modern steelmaking plants with an annual capacity of over 1 million tonnes of liquid steel, built as a non-integrated mini-mill.

The plant uses an ecologically friendly technology for smelting, out-of-furnace treatment and continuous casting. The plant’s main facilities include an electric arc furnace, a vacuum degasser, a ladle furnace and a continuous casting machine made by Italy’s Danieli, as well as a 950/900 blooming mill, straightening and grinding machines, and lines of furnaces for improved heat treatment.

The plant produces continuous cast square billets and continuous cast round billets, as well as hot-rolled round rolled products from carbon, construction and alloyed grades of steel, with use of such thermal treatment methods as quenching and tempering, annealing and normalizing. Billets can be supplied with both as-cast and polished surface quality.

In December 2012, production at Donetsk Electrometallurgical Plant was suspended due to unfavourable market conditions.
