ArcelorMittal Poland freezes its project for rod mill and tests its electric truck!

Due to the difficult situation in the local market, ArcelorMittal Poland (AMP) has paused the rod mill project at its Sosnowiec facility from November 18 to 26.

The manufacturer said that the decision to halt the project was considered in detail and did not ignore figures from the Polish Steel Association, which show that apparent steel consumption is down by 17% per year.

At the same time, ArcelorMittal Europe recently conducted a test of an electric truck transporting steel to a customer. The truck made a round trip from Silesia to Krakow, carrying a total of 200 tons of galv. The Volvo FH Electric truck, which has eight batteries, performed ten trips in exactly five days, reducing CO2 emissions from overland transportation by more than 1.5 tons.

With deliveries expected to be made exclusively with electric vehicles still a long way off, ArcelorMittal Group aims to minimize CO2 emissions by 35% by 2030, an option that will be more relevant in the industry in the future.
