Moscow Coke and Gas Plant Supplies Coke to China

Moscow Coke and Gas Plant (Moscoke AO, part of Mechel Group) has begun shipping its coke to China starting this year. This is the first time that the plant's products were shipped to Chinese customers.

The plant shipped its first batch of some 44,000 tonnes of coal coke to Chinese steelmakers in May. The new clients were satisfied with the product's quality and more shipments followed. In October, yet another batch of 55,000 tonnes of coke is due to be shipped, with another batch of the same size to follow before the year's end. Mechel Carbon handles the sales.

'Moscow Coke and Gas Plant has an extensive sales geography. In different times, we supplied our coke to Europe, Turkey, India and other countries. But this is the first year that our products make it to China. This became possible due to our coke's high quality,' Moscow Coke and Gas Plant's Managing Director Sergey Belan commented.
