LIBERTY produced 1.93m tons of iron
In 2021 LIBERTY Ostrava produced 2.28m tons of liquid steel in
2021, which is 33 % more than in 2020 and at the same time the
most since 2016. Pig iron production increased by 35 % to 1.93m
tons. Production of final products increased by almost 30 % to
2.16m tons, while the flat steel segment increased by 84 % to
680,000 tons and production of long products by 19 % to almost
1.5m tons. The production of seamless pipes amounted to 136,000
tons. In the next eight years, the LIBERTY Steel Group plans to invest
billions of crowns in the transformation of LIBERTY Ostrava into
a carbon-neutral green steel producer. The replacement of the
existing four tandem furnaces of the steelworks with two hybrid
electric arc furnaces will be key.
