“At Emirates Steel, we have a clear vision to move from good to great. A major developmental project, such as our new flat steel plant, necessitates having an accurate and intense study for all aspects of the project. This is extremely important for our growth plans which aim to promote our position as a leading integrated steel manufacturer across the MENA region and drive our vision to be among the top global steel producers. This collaboration with the consultant reflects our keenness to adopt world-class practices and standards. This endorses our decision-making process that is based on data, specialized studies, and the latest technologies.”

Recently, Emirates Steel announced intentions to build a new flat steel products plant, expanding its wide-range high-quality products portfolio. When completed, the new factory will increase Emirates Steel’s annual production capacity to more than 5 million tons. Furthermore, the new plant will have the smallest carbon impact in the region because of its cutting-edge technology.
