ArcelorMittal Asturias: Strengths
• Multi-Product Plant producing Hot Rolled Coils, Tinplate, Galvanised
sheet, Organic Coated sheet, Heavy Plate, Rail and Wire Rod.
• Fully integrated plant.
• Coke self-sufficient plant.
• Strategic location with port services close to the factories. Raw materials
are unloaded at the port of Gijón, which can receive vessels of up to 250kt.
Iron making facilities are linked to the port by belt conveyors.
• Its industrial configuration allows capacity to be increased across the
complete product range.
• Site experienced in shared services and with capacity to extend scope to
other activities and companies.
• Implementation of Arco Plan, a top management program, resulted in
substantial savings. Basis for further improvements.
12
Situation in Spain
• Spain experiences a deep downturn with:
– Residential real estate activity plummets
– Lack of confidence leading to low household consumption
– A strong impact on automotive market
• In this economical environment, steel industry is more impacted in Spain
than in other countries in WE.

How is ArcelorMittal Asturias reacting to the crisis?
•
ArcelorMIttal Asturias, being a multi-product site, is being less affected than other sites of the Group by the fall in
demand of the automotive and construction sectors.
•
The Asturian sites are currently being operated at 76% of their capacity thanks to the strength of some of its products:
rail, heavy plate and tinplate (in 2008 rail and tinplate mills reached their annual production records)
•
ArcelorMittal Asturias needs to respond to the current circumstances in a dynamic and flexible way.
•
Adaptability is key in order to pull out of this difficult period in a strong position.
•
Short term measures:
–
Reduce working capital. Minimize inventories (raw materials, slabs, working progress and final products)
–
Zero increase in CAPEX and OPEX. Investments are limited to safety, legal compliance and environmental
issues.
–
Adaptation of facility running to the load: in December, one of the two blast furnaces in Asturias was stopped. If
the situation remains unchanged, the furnace will have to be stopped again for a few months in Q3. In Finishing
facilities, one Hot Dip Galvanizing Line and one Organic Coating Line (both in Avilés) are currently stopped. Blast
furnaces are being operated in an “all-coke” mode and small diameter tuyeres are being used. Metallic charge is
adapted as a function of the scrap or hot metal requirements.
–
Client service improvement.
–
Maintenance of fixed costs in terms of €/t and reduction of SG&A expenditure.
–
Adaptation of internal and external headcount to workload. Flexibility on working time / advanced holidays / time
counters. Reassignment of own employees to other functions. No salary increase in 2009. Align variable pay
KPI’s and targets to current priorities and workload.
15
How is ArcelorMittal Asturias reacting to the crisis?
• Mid term measures:
– We enter into a cyclic period which requires a flexible production system.
We should be able to increase or decrease production if needed.
– Local Continuous improvement plans must be accelerated.
– That means:
• Adapting the permanent workforce not to 100% of capacity but to an 80%
capacity baseline.
• Building flexible solutions to meet cyclic demand (e.g., hot-stoppage of
four of the eight coke-oven batteries in Avilés).
• Pursuing and rapidly capturing permanent productivity improvements.
• Twinning project:
– Galati site (Romania): Blast Furnaces and Heavy Plate Mill.

Environment
Integrated Environmental Authorisation
•
On May 2, 2008, the Environmental Management Service of the Regional Ministry of the Environment
and Rural Development, notified its Decision granting ArcelorMittal Asturias the Integrated Environmental
Authorisation, Dossier no. AAI-022/05. This Decision was published in the Official Gazette of the
Principality of Asturias (B.O.P.A.) on June 17, 2008.
Environmental Management Systems (EMSs)
•
In its Asturian facilities, ArcelorMittal has implemented four ISO14000-compliant
Environmental Management Systems, with their corresponding Monitoring
Committees.
CO2
•
•
Compliance with the Kyoto Commitment
Throughout the period, CO2 emissions have been below the levels of the CO2 emission allowances
granted under the National Allocation Plan
Recycling and waste-to-value solutions
•
•
•
The efficiency rate attained in waste reutilisation is currently > 90%
Waste treatments are selected according to the following order of preference:
– Direct internal recycling
– Internal waste-to-value processing
– Internal recycling with prior external waste-to-value treatment
– External recycling, with or without intermediate waste-to-value treatment
Ongoing research aimed at developing new recycling and waste-to-value
solutions

Investments
• A significant effort in terms of investment has been made over the last years in all the facilities and
focussed on all environmental vectors (air, water, waste, soil, etc.)
• Environmental investments over the 2005-2007 period amounted to 90 M€

Enviroment
Gesma: environmental monitoring software tool
•
ArcelorMittal’s Continuous Improvement approach, coupled with the
growing concern of all stakeholders regarding the preservation of the
environment, led to the development of the GESMA Project.
•
The Environmental Management software GESMA, currently being
developed, is primarily aimed at:
•
–
Ensuring permanent awareness of the environmental conditions
of the facilities
–
Improving statistical treatment of the information
received/generated
–
Providing warning mechanisms relating to the environmental
conditions based on continuously monitored parameters (sms or
email warnings)
–
Automatic generation of reports meeting the monitoring
requirements defined by the Public Authorities.
–
Follow-up of the most significant environmental management
KPIs for subsequent analysis by ArcelorMittal Asturias’ EMS
Committees
–
Improved operational control of the environmental variables of
existing water treatment plants and future connections to the
Industrial Main Sewer
GESMA is a dynamic software tool, i.e. it not only provides the means
to efficiently manage the environmental data but can also be
continuously enhanced and expanded in line with the evolution of
investments, new requirements or new needs identified (CO2,
dispersion models, etc...)

Investments in 2008 & B2009
• CAPEX : 94 M€
• Main items of environmental and maintenance capex :
– Environmental investments in Avilés Coke Plant: 11 M€.
– New row of staves in Gijón Blast Furnaces: 2 M€.
– Heavy Plate Mill revamping: 2 M€.
– Legal requirements: 5 M€.
– Avilés Coke Plant: 15 M€.
– Heavy Plate Mill revamping: 5 M€.
– Rail Mill: 5 M€.
– Gas holders: 3 M€.
– Rolls: 9 M€.
• Budget 2009:
– Zero increase in environmental projects as compared to 2008 (legal
requirements, environmental issues, upgrading of Gijón Coke Plant)
and maintenance capex of 35 M€ (long+flat+rolls).

Conclusion
• ArcelorMittal Asturias: Integrated, multi-product site (flat and
long products) with maximum capacity of 5 Mt of liquid steel per
year.
• To react to the current crisis, ArcelorMittal Asturias is adjusting
its production to market demand, maintaining its fixed costs and
with zero increase in environmental capex, while adjusting
internal and external personnel to production requirements.
• ArcelorMittal Asturias’ strength is based on the variety of
products that are manufactured in its facilities, as some of these
products are not being affected by a shrinking demand (rail,
tinplate and heavy plate).
