SSI UK achieves 2 million tonnes of slab production

SSI UK, a subsidiary of Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Limited (SSI), has announced today that its iron and steel making facility at Teesside has now produced two million tonnes of steel since the plant was restarted in April last year.

Phil Dryden, Chief Executive of SSI UK said;

“This is another important milestone for the plant which continues to operate reliably and is a credit to all of our employees and contract personnel who are committed to its success. We are looking forward to a further significant ramping up of our production rate during the course of 2013 after the coal injection project starts up.

It’s really important that we now demonstrate the potential of this business to our parent company and all of the stakeholders who have supported us during the past year”
