POSCO restarts 3rd blast furnace

2020-07-13 09:13:46   【Print】
South Korean steelmaker POSCO said last Friday it has restarted its third blast furnace amid the global recession sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move came 20 months after repair and maintenance work worth about 400 billion won (US$332.6 million) at the third blast furnace in Gwangyang, about 420 kilometers southwest of Seoul.

The repair work raised the annual production of crude steel at the third blast furnace by 25 percent to 4.6 million tons, according to the company.

The resumption, which had been pushed back twice, in May and June, came as demand from automakers, construction companies and shipbuilders declined due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

POSCO has five blast furnaces in Gwangyang and four blast furnaces in Pohang, about 375 kilometers southeast of Seoul.
