At the meeting held with the motto of "The Future of Green Steel, Investment of the Future", the most up-to-date information about the Tosyalı Demir Çelik Sarıseki Plant, which is one of the most important investments in the sector not only in Turkey but also in the world, was shared with business partners, while many other investments made by Tosyalı Holding throughout 2022 were also included.
Speaking at the Tosyalı Business Partners Meeting, Fuat Tosyalı, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tosyalı Holding; “We will focus on quality steel production, especially flat steel, at the Tosyalı Demir Çelik Sarıseki Facility, Turkey's largest ongoing industrial investment. This facility will be the most compact facility not only in Turkey but also in the world, with 4 million tons of production in 450,000 square meters. We have used Quantum Arc furnaces, which provide lower electrical energy consumption, in this facility, where we will use the most advanced technologies and will put us ahead in the global competition in accordance with Industry 4.0. As Tosyalı, we will be the first user of this technology in Turkey. The Sarıseki Facility will contribute to the import substitution of approximately 4 million tons of flat steel with its 2 giant, quantum technology steelworks and two ports. It will be one of the exemplary facilities of Turkey in value-added production and exports. As Tosyalı Holding, we will reach a production volume of 10 million tons when we commission this investment of 2.5 billion dollars in 2023. While making a significant contribution to the revival of the economy in the region, we will provide an additional employment of 1500 people.
Sarıseki will be the center of green steel in Turkey

With the high technology and sustainability-oriented investments we use here, this facility will be the Center of Green Steel in Turkey. With the technologies we will use, our facility will consume 30% less electrical energy and 15% less natural gas. Thanks to renewable energy sources and more efficient use of scrap, we will have a carbon footprint of 70% lower than blast furnaces and 20% lower than conventional arc furnaces. With the new investments we will make in clean and renewable energy sources such as solar and hydrogen, these consumptions will decrease even more. As Tosyalı, we will be the company with the largest rooftop solar power plant in the world, with the project that we have started in all our facilities, which will reach an installed power of 215 MW. As Tosyalı, our consolidated renewable energy target is 2 G Watt installed power in the long term. We aim to create a production structure where fossil fuels are never used in the long term and our self-sufficiency is at the highest level. As Tosyalı, all these investments we have made will make us the leading green steel producer, while contributing to the transformation of our business partners' businesses and increasing the value, quality and profit of their work.”
