February 4, 2013. Transformer steel output at OOO VIZ-Stal came to more than 41,000 tons in the last quarter of 2012, which was 3.1% less than a year earlier. All in all, more than 164,000 tons of transformer steel was produced by the company in the year 2012. This is 3.7% less than a year earlier, the company reports.

‘An insignificant, planned-for decrease in the production output had to do with the reconstruction of the annealing units; this was aimed at improving our produce’s consumer properties and at raising the share of premium segment steel output,’ the company explains.

As a result, the share of first-class rolled goods in the total volume of goods rose by 4% in the last quarter of 2012 and the share of first-class steel products (grade 3408-3409) increased by 2.8% in comparison with the third quarter of 2012.
