Metallurgical enterprise "Kametstal" of the Netherlands mining and metallurgical holding Metinvest B.V. (Metinvest), created at the facilities of the Dneprovsky Metallurgical Plant (DMK, Kamenskoye, Dnepropetrovsk region), continues to work at full capacity. This was told by the general director of the plant Dmitry Lippa in an interview with the TV channel "Ukraine 24".
“We are provided with orders, there are problems with logistics, but we are solving them. We plan to carry out a major overhaul of one of the units - today we will stop it as planned. We planned back in April, but decided to release more products,” he said, adding that after 2.5 months of war, the company was able to stabilize the situation.
According to Interfax-Ukraine, a source at the enterprise told Interfax-Ukraine that one of the three blast furnaces is being stopped for major repairs of the first category. “The shutdown of the unit will be long,” said the source of the agency, without specifying the possible timing of the decommissioning of the furnace.
The main shareholders of Metinvest are Rinat Akhmetov's SCM Group (71.24%) and Vadim Novinsky's Smart Holding (23.76%), who jointly manage the company.
