Today, Zelezara Smederevo, four years after shutting it down, released “high furnace 1”. Maximal production of Zlezara is now estimated at approximately 2,2 tons per year.

Member of the Supervisory Board, Bojan Bojkovic said for RTS that this is an important Zelezara and a big day for Serbia. According to him, putting the furnace into operation brings 75 thousand tons of steel, sales of USD 300 m and jobs for 200 people.

Vucic said negotiations with a strategic, Chinese partner, Hebei iron and steel group (HBIS) have been in progress and that it is the second or even the most powerful steel plant in the world.

High furnace 1 started operating in 1971 and it was shut down for the first time in 1987 for an overall overhaul. More modern high furnace 2 then started operating with a maximal monthly capacity of 95.000 tons.
