Evraz Suspends Crude Steel Output at Czech Unit for Maintainance

July 13, 2012

Evraz Plc (EVR), Russia’s largest steelmaker, said it will suspend crude steel production at its Vitkovice unit in the Czech Republic from July 17 for almost a month due to regular maintenance.

The temporary shutdown is caused by the disruption of liquid pig-iron supplies from ArcelorMittal (MT) Ostrava due to repairs on a railway bridge in the region, Evraz said in an e- mailed statement. It will use the break for mild repairs of technological equipment at Vitkovice Steel, Evraz said.
