Japan-based Nippon Steel Corporation has announced that its continuous hot-dip galvanizing line at its Kimitsu Works in Chiba will start production in the first quarter of 2021. The new line was designed to produce ultra-high-tensile steel sheets and will have a production capacity of 33,000 mt per month, as SteelOrbis previously reported.

The line was scheduled to start production in the second quarter of financial year 2020-21, however it has been delayed due to the uncertainty amid the coronavirus, as SteelOrbis understands.
