|JFE Steel To Execute Repairs On Kurashiki No3 Blast Furnace|
JFE Steel Corp is contemplating executing repairs on the No3 blast furnace for a fourth time in the Kurashiki division of the company's West Japan works. The repairs are scheduled to start in October 2009 for completion in April 2010. The repairs are estimated to cost nearly Y30 billion. |
JFE Steel has stopped operations of the Kurashiki No3 blast furnace since January this year in the wake of plunged steel demand.
After the repairs, the new Kurashiki No3 blast furnace will have an enlarged inside volume of 5,055 cubic meters, up from the present 4,359 cubic meters.
JFE Steel intends to decide when to kindle the new Kurashiki No3 blast furnace after due consideration of how steel demand will come out in the future.
