Friday, 09 Dec 2011

According to preliminary data, in 2012 Turkish steelmaker Isdemir plans to keep coking coal purchases at this year’s level of 3 million tonne. Nevertheless, the volumes may be lower if coke production is reduced. The material is imported from Australia, the USA and Canada.

According to available information, Isdemir operates 4 coke batteries with a total designed capacity of 2 million tonne per year. The company is running two blast furnaces with a total capacity of 3.6 million tonne per year and is self sufficient in coke. The leftover is shipped to Erdemir.
