DCH Group's Dneprovsky Metallurgical Plant boosts coke output 64.4% in Jan

MOSCOW. Feb 8 (Interfax) - Dneprovsky Metallurgical Plant (DMP), part of Ukrainian businessman Alexander Yaroslavsky's DCH Group, boosted metallurgical coke production 64.4% year-on-year in January to 22,700 tonnes.

Ukrainian media quoted in-house newspaper DCH Steel as saying DMP did not produce any steel roll in January this year, although it made 8,800 tonnes in January 2023. It sold products made in December while it overhauled its Nos. 1 and 2 rolling mills. "The No.2 mill will start up again in the last 10 days of February," it said.

DMP shipped 3,700 tonnes of roll and 22,900 tonnes of coke to consumers in January.

DMP ramped up production of rolled products 86.2% to 105,600 tonnes and output of metallurgical coke 38.5% to 292,700 tonnes in 2023. DMP cut output of rolled products 35% month-on-month and 27% year-on-year to 5,200 tonnes in December 2023. Coke production fell 6% month-on-month but doubled year-on-year, to 23,900 tonnes in December 2023.

DMP specializes in semi-finished products and structural steel.

DMP unites the former Petrovsky Dnepropetrovsk Metallurgical Plant and Dneprokoks.
