ArcelorMittal Luxembourg mills to remain idled until 2013 - 6 December 2011

ArcelorMittal has informed workers at its long products plants in Rodange and Schifflange, Luxembourg, that the two works will remain idled throughout 2012 due to market conditions, Steel Business Briefing learns from sources at the plants.

Production will be halted at Schifflange’s 1.3m tonne/year capacity EAF and its rolling mills. The plant produces rails, merchant bar and rebar, SBB notes. Rodange’s 400,000 t/y special sections mill will also be halted.

Both Rodange and Schifflange were idled in October 2011, as SBB reported.

The group’s other two longs production sites in the Grand Duchy are currently working and should continue doing so: Belval and Differdange.

Nobody from ArcelorMittal was available for comment before press deadline.
