Equipment modernization started in December 2021, but was paused during hot conservation in March

Zaporizhzhia Coke Plant has completed another stage of overhaul of coke battery №2 with UAH 120 million as part of the production facilities modernization program, a press release of the company reads.

The overhaul of the furnaces started in December 2021, but was stopped during the hot conservation of equipment caused by hostilities in the country. In April, with the decommissioning of equipment, Metinvest-Promservice and Zaporizhognetriv employees resumed repairs.

The works were carried out in the conditions of ongoing production. The revision of the equipment will allow prolonging the service life of the unit and reducing the load on the environment.

Earlier GMK Center reported that in November 2021, Zaporizhkoks completed a five-year restoration work on coke batteries №5 and 6, investing UAH 400 million in overhaul. Repair of units started in 2016 and is one of the main strategic projects of the investment program.

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.
