The Kim Chaek Steel Complex, after reaching the goal of steel production, exceeded the crude iron production plan. This was achieved by introducing appropriate methods to keep the oxygen blast heating furnace operating.
In recent days, the Hwanghae Steel Complex, which has already met its crude iron production target, successively completed the production plans for steel and its rolled materials.
The Chollima Steel Complex increased the production of cast iron in each smelter and put the rolling mills and heating furnaces into full operation, allowing them to fulfill the production plan for rolled steel materials.
Also the Posan Iron Smelter and Puryong Alloy Iron Factory actively introduced technical innovation projects to achieve the iron production goal.
