Sider El-Hadjar complex: maintenance work on hot zone units

Maintenance work for some units in the hot zone is scheduled from May 2 to 16 at the Sider El Hadjar steel complex in Annaba, General Management announced on April 28, 2022, in a press release.

According to the same source, the units concerned by the maintenance operation are those relating to the preparation of raw materials and felting, blast furnace, oxygen steelworks 1 and 2 and the electric steelworks.

The complex will take the opportunity of the maintenance period, which requires the stoppage of productive activity to carry out other maintenance works initially planned for next August due to the availability of spare parts and accessories.

The periodic maintenance actions aim to preserve the production tool, noting that the programming during this phase takes into account the situation, which records an increase on the international market, the prices of raw materials and spare parts required for the process of production, including coke, zinc, and refractory brick, in addition to transportation costs.

A team of foreign technicians is expected at the Complex towards the end of the first week of May for the blast furnace maintenance.

The other production units of Sider El Hadjar manufacturing finished products, including coils, sheets, reinforcing bars and tubes, will continue their normal activities not being affected by the maintenance operation.
