LUGANSK, December 24 (Lugansk Media Centre) – The Alchevsk Steel Plant has produced nearly 1.5 mln tons of production since December 2017, when it was relaunched.

"At the moment the Alchevsk Steel Plant was incorporated in the Vneshtorgservis, it had 10,000 employees. Today, there are 13,000 workers. We added 3,000 workplaces. The average salary in the region was 11,000 rubles, today it is 15,900 rubles, as of November," the director of the Vneshtorgservis branch No 2 Sergey Gorokhov said at the meeting with the Alchevsk Steel Plant staff.

"This is a good indication, but we are not going to stop here. We want to increase salaries, depending on the production. As of today, the plant has produced 1.5 mln tons of production."

The figure is to be increased next year, he said.

The company has paid 930 mln rubles in taxes to the state budget this year.

This year, the LPR has reconstructed high-voltage power lines, enabling the Alchevsk Steel Plant to boost production and the re-launch of the Stakhanov Ferrous Alloy Plant. As part of the LPR Program-2023, engineers have restored a power bridge comprising a 500 kV and a 200 kV lines. Both lines incurred damage in 2014 during active military action in the region.
