ArcelorMittal Zenica, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, has completed a €30 million project to rebuild the blast furnace and upgrade other areas of the factory, including the energy, sinter and steel plants and the rolling mill.
The latest projects are bringing the total invested in the Zenica plant to over €200 million. The refurbishment means that integrated steel production can continue in Zenica for up to 20 years into the future.
The project’s completion was marked with a ceremony in the heart of the steelworks, attended by over 200 guests, including Prime Minister of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Fadil Novalic and Miralem Galijasevic, Prime Minister of Zenica-Doboj Canton. Augustine Kochuparampil and Lutz Bandusch attended on behalf of ArcelorMittal Europe.
