SSIM plans new steel mini-mill for €147 million near Košice

SSIM Košice says it plans to invest about €147 million (more than Sk4.4 billion) to build a new scrap iron processing plant. The new steel mini-mill should be built near the village of Mokrance, near Košice in eastern Slovakia. It would occupy a 40-hectare site and its chief output would be construction steel. The production capacity of the new plant is planned to be 500,000 tons of steel products annually. The mill should create about 600 new jobs.

The Environment Ministry has already issued a positive opinion in response to a construction permit application for the new plant, SSIM board member Zdenka Gacíková told the SITA newswire. She added that construction should be completed in 2010 and that the village council has already agreed to it. “Everything is at the stage of arranging paperwork at the moment; a construction permit has not yet been issued. I cannot provide any more details at this stage,” said Mokrance Mayor Mária Lacková. SITA
