Platts reports that the Libyan Iron and Steel Company (LISCO) has restarted its hot strip mill (pictured) in recent weeks.
Sliman Biram, Lisco’s director of commerce and finance, confirmed that the plant will now be able to supply flat steel products.
The mill in the city of Misurata stopped production in February of last year due to the anti-government uprising.
Lisco had intended to re-start the hot strip mill a few months ago, but it had first to fix some problems with the plant’s electric power supply from Gecol, the Libyan general electric company.
