With new owner Metinvest Group coming to Zaporizhstal in 2012 the works took the course for active development and production process reconstruction. Large-scale enterprise ecological modernization has been carried out, the part of which Blast furnace No3 became. The reconstruction has been fulfilled in record-breaking time for national industry – 8 months, as ordinary such project realization takes one and half years.
