Mexican steelmaker Altos Hornos de México SA de
CVs (Ahmsas) Fénix steel expansion project
has been working at around 40 percent of production capacity
following its start-up in July, a top executive told
AMM sister publication Steel First.
"I would want to be at
100 percent, but we are in a learning curve," Ahmsa chairman
Alonso Ancira Elizondo said on the sidelines of the 3rd
Mexican Iron and Steel Conference in Mexico
City organized by steel association Canacero. "By the end
of this year we expect to reach 100 percent."
The project was officially commissioned July 18 (
