ArcelorMittal’s Spanish arm has bagged a €42.3mn contract to provide steel for the upkeep of the Spanish railway system.
The Spanish state-owned railway infrastructure company, Adif, said in an announcement that ArcelorMittal España would supply the steel needed for repairs and spare parts of its railway network under an open order system depending on the maintenance and renovation needs of the network as well as the need for the maintenance and upkeep for its roads and stations.
The steelmaker will supply rolled steel for rails from its plant in Gijón for this order that will be co-financed by the European Regional Development fund.
ArcelorMittal’s Gijón facility is the only integrated steel mill in Spain with a capacity to produce 5mn tons (4.53mn mt) of steel. The plant manufactures flat and long products at this facility.
