Water consumption at MSC down 40 percent; supply of products up: Managing director


Close cooperation among members of staff and management and implementation of several creative projects, including one which ensures maximal treatment and recycling of wastewater along production lines, have helped Mobarakeh Steel Company (MSC) reduce the volume of water it uses to just 2.7 liters per kg of steel it produces and beat its own production goals by raising output by as much as 13 percent over last year, MSC Managing Director Dr. Bahram Sobhani said, adding this comes despite the fact that MSC has been grappling with water shortage – just like other sectors – since the beginning of the current year [late March 2018].
Speaking at an MSC management committee session, the managing director said the achievement comes at a time when the lowest level of water consumption by steelmakers for each kg of steel stands at more than 3.7 liters, and MSC serves as an example for local and foreign steelmakers when it comes to water consumption.
He further said that MSC has created substantial economic value added (EVA) on the back of efforts by members of staff and smart investment in measures designed to complete the steel chain, adding today the role of MSC in economic development of the country is more important than ever before. “Thus, we need to meet the domestic need maximally as we seize on the export opportunity to bring foreign currency into the country.”
Dr. Sobhani also recalled the importance of meeting his company’s need for goods and services from local sources and said we need to pay maximum attention to indigenization of parts and equipment the company uses. In order to put all the items we need on the indigenization list, we have to lend as much support as possible to local producers, he concluded.
