”TARGET 3 MILLION TON STEEL PRODUCTION“
Güleç, 1995 500 thousand tons of capacity in the privatized, and especially since the 2002 with investments continue to increase every year after the privatization KARDEMIR'in world iron steel industry, which is an important criterion by explaining the level of production, N Vision; 'Producing the products not manufactured in Turkey with global competitiveness, to produce at least 3 million tons of steel' as it determines KARDEMİR, while increasing the production capacity on the one hand, the non-value-added manufactured in our country from the other side also increases the diversity of products with high products. As of 2010, KARDEMİR produced 1 million 2015 thousand tons of liquid steel in 2. In recent years, KARDEMİR, which is a producer of rebar and billet, has started to produce non-production products in our country such as high-speed train tracks, mushroom hardened rails, railway shears and heavy profiles which are not produced anywhere as a single-rail manufacturer between our country and the region.

According to the 2014 data, 20 has been imported into one thousand units and this requirement will be increased to 2023 by 1,000 units according to the 50 business plan. Kardemir's 200 thousand units / year capacity 50 thousand wheels per year with this plant will be reduced to zero the import of Turkey and 150 thousand units / year export potential will occur. Our goal is to increase the competitiveness of Kardemir by rapidly completing the investments that will add strength to our power, such as Rod and Coil Rolling Mill, Rail Wheel Manufacturing Plant, Rail Hardening. These projects, which will increase KARDEMİR to 3 million tons and which will enable the production of high value-added imported products in our country, will be achieved by a port or port alternative in Filyos. In this context, it is our greatest goal to create an opportunity for KARDEMİR to meet the needs of a quay and storage area instead of the pier on its own land. Our project in this direction is prepared for all technical details. The fact that the Filyos Project is brought to life will bring Kardemir to the sea, it will open up to the world and bring a serious economic life to our region F.
İ The Chinese Thracian “
Gulec continued his speech:
Oldu 2015 was a year in which the growth in China's economy, which had been gradually growing, had created a surplus of supply in industrial production and began to change the balances around the world. This situation in China has affected most of the world steel industry and thus our country. 1.6 billion tonnes of steel in the world is produced in China, 2015 441 million tons of steel in China in excess of 2015; it is a fact on a global scale that this situation has led to historical decreases by suppressing the prices. In the Chinese steel industry, which is producing on demand, the focus is heavily on the export markets, and in the 100 year, China's steel exports have surpassed the 2017 million-ton threshold, which is more than the production of non-Japanese countries. It has been. As such, in the 150, China's steel exports are estimated to be 2016 million tons. We expect this to affect at least the first quarter results of 50. China's rapidly growing steel exports have led to a decline in the capacity utilization, production and margins of industrial enterprises in many countries of the world and many facilities have even been disabled. Turkey is the world's eighth largest steel producer and 63 million tons of annual crude steel production capacity while having; It is another fact that our steel production has declined despite the increasing consumption, the capacity utilization rates have fallen to 2013 and our country has become the importer from the exporter position for the first time after years. As it is known, the sector we are in is hard with the experiences experienced as the sector that gives the hardest reaction to the economic fluctuations. For this, without going back to the sector 2014-2015 years and sales prices and profit margins would be sufficient to consider. Our management has paid much attention to the general reality of the economy, the year we have left behind, and has taken care to use our assets correctly by prioritizing our investment expenditures, production, cost, efficiency and profitability concepts. This discipline has been our priority in 2015 activity period as in every activity period. Despite all this, Turkey is continuing growth in steel consumption. In 12,8, steel consumption increased by 2016. Some projects, which are dominated by uncertainty before the election, continue with the new government and we expect the growth to accelerate, this increase in consumption will be reflected on production and we are looking at the XNUMX year more positively.
