In comparison with June, blast furnace coke production increased by 2.9% in July.

In January-July, Zaporizhkoks increased blast furnace coke production by 26.2% y/y – up to 499.9 thousand tons.

In 2022, Zaporizhkoks reduced production of blast furnace coke by 11.9% compared to 2021 – to 737.4 thousand tons. Production output decreased due to the shutdown of the plant from March 1, 2022, due to the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As of April 1, 2022, production was partially restored. The company’s products were supplied to Metinvest enterprises, in particular to the Zaporizhstal plant.

As GMK Center reported earlier, in June 2022, Zaporizhkoks has completed another stage of overhaul of coke battery №2 with UAH 120 million as part of the production facilities modernization program. The work was carried out from December 2021 in the conditions of current production. Revision of the equipment will make it possible to extend the service life of the unit and reduce the load on the environment.

Zaporizhkoks is one of the largest producers of coke products in Ukraine. It is part of the Metinvest Holding group. The main consumer of products is Zaporizhstal Iron and Steel Works.
