The implementation of a whole range of government measures aimed at the restoration of certain manufacturing industries, such as import substitution policies, the implementation of government programs, the provision of tax benefits and preferences, allowed for the stable growth of production volumes and the commissioning of new enterprises.
In the framework of the republican action plan, work was carried out to support industrial enterprises of the region: Tau-Ken Temir LLP and Temirtau Electrometallurgical Plant JSC.
This is a solution to questions on the application of reducing coefficients for electricity tariffs.
ArcelorMittal Temirtau JSC
The volume of steel production in 2018 amounted to 3,300.7 thousand tons against the fact in 2017 (4,042.9 thousand tons), a decrease of 18.4%, shipments of rolled products - 3,208.1 thousand tons, a decrease of 13, 9% (3 726 thousand tons). The main reason for the decline in AMT was the suspension of the metallurgical plant from November 10 to December 28 due to an accident at the gas pipeline.
In 2019, pig iron production is planned to increase by 22.1% by 2018, steel production - by 28%, and flat steel shipments by 20%.

Coal mining is planned for 2019 at 11.2 million tons against 10 million tons in 2018 (12%).
The company is implementing an investment project to increase steel production up to 5 million tons per year, which is included in the republican map of industrialization.
At the metallurgical plant of ArcelorMittal Temirtau JSC, as part of the modernization of production in March 2019, it is planned to complete the investment project to launch the ladle furnace No. 3.
The launch of the new installation will allow to stabilize the work of continuous casting machines (CCM). As a result, each caster will be provided with sufficient quantities of raw materials.
Implementation of the investment project started in 2017. The project is being completed.
In order to stabilize the blast furnace production, reconstruction and overhaul of sintering machine No. 5 is ongoing, the launch is scheduled for 2019.
In sheet rolling shop No. 1, the reconstruction of the hot rolling mill continues to expand the range of rolled products and yield suitable products.
