Algoma Steel confirmed to /ONNtv on Friday that a problem with the steelmaker’s Number 7 blast furnace has been fixed. Brenda Stenta, Manager of Communications said in an email “We did experience an operating upset on our No 7 blast furnace this past week. Thankfully it coincided with a number of scheduled maintenance outages which has enabled us to minimize overall impact to operations. We have maintained production at select downstream operations and continue to ship steel. A safe and controlled restart of the furnace is well underway. There were no injuries and there has been no impact to staffing levels.”

Just over a month ago, reported thick black smoke and flames were seen when the plant lost power. The loss of power forced the blast furnace to shut down.
