MMK Magnitogorsk

MMK Magnitogorsk is a 14500 thousand tonnes per annum (TTPA) blast furnace (BF), basic oxygen furnace (BOF) and electric arc furnace (EAF) steel plant operating in Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk, Russia.

The plant was commissioned in February of 1932, when pig iron was first produced in the first blast furnace.[2] Initially, steel was produced in the open-hearth furnace. The basic oxygen furnace shop was commissioned in 1990. The electric arc furnace shop was established in 2006 on the basis of the open-hearth shop.[2]

EAF can operate with 100% scrap or with up to 40% liquid iron

MMK continues large-scale reconstruction of its coke and chemical production facilities

On 14 July 2023, Viktor Rashnikov, Chairman of MMK's Board of Directors, briefed the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Urals Federal District Vladimir Yakushev and Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region Alexey Teksler on the progress made towards the construction of MMK’s new coke oven battery No. 12. Investment in the project is estimated at over RUB 80 billion.

At present, the project is focused on the technological setup of the first battery unit, with construction of the dry coke quenching unit almost completed. The project’s second stage will see the construction of two more coke oven battery blocks with 50 furnaces apiece, each with a coal tower and process units. In addition, a waste heat recovery boiler and two turbine generators behind the dry coke quenching unit with a total capacity of 40 MW will be put into operation, which will make it possible to supply the coke battery complex's power needs. The launch of the second stage is scheduled for 2024. The new coke battery will have a production capacity of 2.5 million tonnes of dry coke per year, which covers almost half of MMK's coke demand.

Full description

Southern Ural town of Magnitogorsk belongs among the legends of world iron and steel industries. The first construction plans for this integrated plant were designed in 1925 by S. Zelentsov. On 17 January 1929 the Soviet Government´s session took a decision on the start of construction of the Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works.

The coke plant no.1 was built in 1931 and just one year later the first blast furnace was started up (designed by american constructeur Arthur G. McKee). Second blast furnace followed and the third one was put into operation in 1933 together with first open-hearth furnace and the blooming mill.

Turbulent war years brought the first contract for armored steel. The very fist steel of such grade was smelted in 1941. At the same time, the 4500 plate mill was transported from Mariupol and put into operation here as the largest rolling facility of this type in the entire USSR.

In 1951, the 2000 strip mill was built.

With the transition to a more modern technology in 1986 decided to invest in a new oxygen steelworks. The first tapping was done ​​in 1990.

Today, the Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Combine with an annual production of 12 mln tons of crude steel belongs among the world´s largest mills. Integrated plant has its own ore mine, 3 separate coke ovens, 8 blast furnaces, 3 oxygen converters (360 tons each), 2 electric arc and 1 twin-bath furnace and 5 rolling mills from 170 mm to 5000 mm.
