Havana Metallurgical Combine

Havana Metallurgical Combine

 

(full name, José Martí Havana Metallurgical Combine), a major metallurgical enterprise in Cuba. Founded in 1961, the combine grew out of three small ferrous metallurgy plants that had existed in prerevolutionary Cuba and had manufactured small quantities of steel and rolled metal products. The combine is being reconstructed with the assistance of the USSR. In March 1967, two new furnaces with capacities of 70 tons and 140 tons were added to the two existing open-hearth furnaces. The “720” rolling mill and the “300” light-section rolling mill were rebuilt, and other units were reequipped. It was expected that the country’s annual production would reach 350,000 tons of steel and 290,000 tons of rolled iron with the completion of modernization in 1973.
