In 2015 IMH Coal division increased its output by 8% y-o-y to 1.89 million tonnes of coking coal. Butovskaya coal mine production achieved 1 million tonnes (+16%). Uchastok Koksovy open pit production remained at the same level y-o-y – 0.89 million tonnes.

OAO Koks increased production of coke by 5% y-o-y from 2.60 to 2.73 million tonnes due to increased demand on global markets.

OAO Kombinat KMAruda in 2015 increased iron ore concentrate output by 2% y-o-y to 2.23 million tons. Production of iron ore rose by 2% to 4.96 million tonnes.

Gross production of pig iron at PAO Tulachermet decreased by 6% from 2.18 to 2.06 million tonnes y-o-y mainly due to the scheduled maintenance of blast furnace №3 in July 2015 and also because of higher volume of premium grade pig iron production.

Sergey Frolov, Vice President for Strategy and Communications of IMH commented on Group’s FY 2015 results:

“Despite the fact that the last year was pretty tough from economical point of view, IMH production capacity utilization remained close to 100% during 2015. All Group’s divisions were able to fulfill their annual production plans. Due to exceptional product quality and Group’s excellent reputation, demand for IMH products remained stable throughout 2015. 

The increase in the efficiency of capital investments allowed us to reduce capex by half, while fully preserving the entire scope of work for key investment projects. In 2016 we will continue implementing projects on construction of the second stage of Butovskaya mine, commissioning of the Tikhova mine and construction of the underlying lower horizon at the Gubkin mine of KMAruda. Modernization of the power facilities at Tulachermet plant will also be carried out along schedule.

In 2015 IMH continued to implement its updated development strategy, which invokes steady increase of production of high-margin products. In particular, we increased the production of premium grades of pig iron in our portfolio. In 2015, their share of the gross production volume summed up to 31% or 648 thousand tonnes (increase by 6% y-o-y). In 2014 it was 28% (611 thousand tonnes), while in 2013 - 15% (308 thousand tonnes). In 2016 due to the commission of desulphurization station at Tulachermet we expect to focus more on the premium grades of pig iron and significant reduction of production costs”.
