Sidor Refractory Brick Supply to be Normal by April 2010

An official with the basic industries and mining ministry told BNamericas that “The final negotiations with the former Ceramicas owners necessary for taking over control and restarting operations are being wrapped up.“ After Ceramicas Carabobo was nationalized it stopped operating for almost a year and nearly 70 % of the melting and ladle furnaces at Sidor had to be shut down due to the lack of refractory brick supply. Since then Sidor has been using bricks imported from Brazil. The refractory brick producer will restart operations under a new name that is still unknown. Sidor has liquid steel capacity of 4,2 Mt/a and is controlled by state heavy industry holding CVG. The steelmaker expects to close the year 2009 with production of 3,1 Mt.
