Tunisia: Steel Industry Overview

Iron and Steel.—Iron ore production declined in 2000

                Société du Djebel Djerissa produced about 76% of its iron ore output from the underground Djerissa Mine and about 24% from the open pit Tamera-Douaria operation. The Société Tunisienne de Sidérurgie’s steel plant at El Fouladh produced record volumes of cast iron [195,600 metric tons (t)] and steel (237,000 t). National imports of steel sections and bars also increased to 715,200 t in 2000 from 697,000 t in 1999 (Central Bank of Tunisia, 2001, p. 67, 115; Institut National de la Statistique, 2001, p. 12). During 2000, Danieli Morgårdshammar S.A. began the installation of a five-stand continuous finishing mill at the Intermetal S.A. steel bar and section mill in Tunis.
