Brazilian steelmaker ArcelorMittal Brazil said on Tuesday it will resume operations at its No. 3 blast furnace at its Tubarão mill by the second half of October.
The company said the Tubarão blast furnace is currently under maintenance, after a halt started in April. The furnace has a 2.8 million mt/year capacity.
The company said it will resume the equipment on an improving domestic demand scenario, however, the three Tubarão blast furnaces will continue operating at reduced capacity.
