ArcelorMittal Announces EUR 92 Million Investment in France
This investment confirms the Dunkirk plant’s capacity to produce 7 Mt of slab, to supply other plants within ArcelorMittal including Florange and Liege. With the production at Fos-sur-Mer and Dunkirk, the total production of liquid steel in France is 11 Mt/a, or 40 % of the production volume within ArcelorMittal Flat Carbon Europe. The full revamping will take place during the second half of 2015 and will last four months. In 2015, after 23 years of production, the blast furnace no. 2 will have produced 26 Mt of crude steel.
