The biggest investment projects over the past years are being implemented in full swing within this program. The projects aim to increase volume of products, intensify metallurgical transformations, provide the growing main production with materials, energy sources and auxiliary media, improve the environment. The key projects include the construction of bar and wire rod mill with potential output of 1 mln ton of rolled products per year, revamping of steel-making production, construction of the third lime kiln.
