Tata Steel UK maintenance to spare deliveries

A Tata Steel spokesperson confirms the group is planning to carry out maintenance at some of its UK mills during December, but stresses this will not have an impact on customers.

Sources in the market suggest the maintenance will be carried out at the Port Talbot mill between 3 and 22 December. Kallanish understands two of the mills at the site will be under maintenance during that period, but the company does not expect this downtime to impact deliveries as they are part of planned annual operations.

The integrated Port Talbot site can produce up to 5 million tonnes/year of crude steel.
