26 June 2019

Metalloinvest, a leading global iron ore and HBI producer and supplier, and one of the regional producers of high-quality steel, is participating in the tenth international METEC Trade Fair 2019, which is taking place in Dusseldorf on 25-29 June.

This year, the largest global metallurgical industry forum will showcase innovative production and steelmaking technologies, environmental protection initiatives, and solutions for maximising the efficiency of resource and energy use. Over 2,200 companies are participating in METEC 2019. 78,000 visitors are expected to attend the exhibition from over 120 countries around the world.

Metalloinvest’s delegation at METEC 2019 is headed up by Nazim Efendiev, First Deputy CEO and Sales Director of Management Company Metalloinvest and Andrey Ugarov, First Deputy CEO and COO of Management Company Metalloinvest. Other Metalloinvest representatives attending the event include leaders and technical specialists from the Company’s steelmaking enterprises, OEMK and Ural Steel, as well as employees from the Company’s exportation affiliates.

Nazim Efendiev commented: “METEC 2019 is a unique platform to learn about the latest technological trends and developments and speak to the largest global suppliers of equipment and solutions for steelmaking production. We spent the first day of the event meeting our major partners Tenova, SMS Group and Danieli. We also held discussions with Midrex and Primetals Technologies about development projects to boost Metalloinvest’s pellet and HBI production capacities. Metalloinvest values its partnership with producers of niche equipment and machinery which is required by our enterprises. Metalloinvest specialists are participating in scientific-technological conferences and discussions at METEC 2019 which will form the future of our industry. We have also observed the significant interest of global metal and steel companies in our products.”

Metalloinvest is exhibiting a wide range of its products at METEC 2019 including pellets, HBI and rolled steel, including SBQ (Special Bar Quality).

The Company is increasing its presence on the global high-quality iron ore and metallised product market. Demand for pellets and HBI (raw materials with high Fe content and low levels of harmful impurities) is growing thanks to the long-term “green” trend in the industry. The use of these products boosts the energy efficiency of steel production and reduces atmospheric emissions.

Note for Editors:

The METEC Trade Fair takes place every four years. The event brings together the largest producers of equipment for the metals and steel industry, suppliers of technological solutions, steel product customers and sector specialists and experts. Leading metals industry professionals from across the globe host seminars, symposiums, lectures and presentations as part of METEC.
