It is worth reminding that, in connection with the escalation of military operations in the region since the beginning of March 2022, part of the equipment of Zaporizhstal of Metinvest Group underwent hot mothballing. At the end of March 2022, Zaporizhstal partially resumed the operation of the cold rolling shop for the production and shipment of cold-rolled coils to the European consumer. A month after the forced shutdown, Zaporizhstal demothballed the equipment and partially resumed production. Since April 2022, the plant has been operating at an average of 50% capacity.
