According to preliminary data, in 2012 Turkish steelmaker Isdemir (owned by Erdemir) plans to keep coking coal purchases at this year’s level of 3 mt. Nevertheless, the volumes may be lower if coke production is reduced. The material is imported from Australia, the USA and Canada. According to available information, Isdemir operates four coke batteries (No.1, No.2, No.5 and No.6) with a total designed capacity of 2 mtpy. The company is running two blast furnaces with a total capacity of 3.6 mtpy and is self-sufficient in coke. The leftover is shipped to Erdemir.
