NLMK increases iron ore pellet output


Russia’s largest steelmaker, Novolipetsk Steel (NLMK), will increase iron ore pellet output at its Stoilensky plant in the west of Russia to 6.4 million tonnes per year in 2018, a company spokeswoman told Metal Bulletin. The 2018 target would increase NLMK’s 64.8% Fe pellet output by 11.89% year-on-year, up from 5.72 million tonnes in 2017.

“We don’t have any plans to sell to third parties – all pellet output will be fed into NLMK’s Lipetsk steel mill [also located in the west of Russia],” the spokeswoman said.
