Facts & Figures

 

At the height of its production, the Rustavi Metallurgical Plant was producing the following every year:

  • 620,000 tonnes of coke
  • 1,200,000 tonnes of sinter
  • 1,450,000 tonnes of steel
  • 700,000 tonnes of pig iron
  • 500,000 tonnes of seamless pipes
  • 130,000 tonnes of sheet metal
  • 130,000 tonnes of bolt stock
  • 1,200,000 tonnes of pipe billets

The Plant’s capacity used to be the following:

  • a sintering plant with a nominal annual production capacity of 2.2 million tonnes
  • a blast furnace with a nominal annual production capacity of 725,000 tonnes
  • two coke batteries with a nominal annual production capacity of 350,000 tonnes
  • eight 200-tonne-capacity open-hearth furnaces with a nominal annual production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes
  • a “Mill-1,000” blooming mill with a nominal annual production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes
  • a “900/750” billet mill with a nominal annual production capacity of 1 million tonnes
  • a “Mill-140” seamless pipe mill with a nominal annual production capacity of 120,000 tonnes
  • a “Mill-400” seamless pipe mill with a nominal annual production capacity of 350,000 tonnes
  • a workshop for cold-drawing pipes with a nominal annual production capacity of 50,000 tonnes
  • a “Mill-320” reinforcing-bar mill with a nominal annual production capacity of 160,000 tonnes

 

The Plant’s current production capacity

Steel-melting and reinforcing-bar workshop:

The production capacity of this steel-melting complex is 10,000 tonnes a month.

Tube-rolling workshop:

The “Mill-400” can produce between 5,000 and 8,000 tonnes of seamless pipes a month.

Shape-casting workshop:

The workshop is capable of producing 1,000 tonnes of cast-iron billets and 300 to 350 tonnes of silicon-manganese a month.

Slag dump:

Every month, the Plant processes around 130,000 tonnes of slag, of which 100,000 tonnes are open-hearth slag and 30,000 tonnes are blast-furnace slag.
