Since the beginning of the current year for each metric ton of pig iron produced, Ilyich has consumed 484 kg of coke, 82 cubic meters of natural gas and 40 cubic meters of oxygen. The plant's average daily production of pig iron amounts to 14,410 mt.
As SteelOrbis previously reported, from late February this year Ilyich plans to resume work on the construction of its PCI facility for blast furnaces, which is being supplied by China National Mineral Co. Ltd, in line with the contract concluded on May 18, 2006.
