Bangkok Post reported that Tata Steel Thailand Pic said that electric arc furnace steel plant in Ravong province is expected to resume full operations within 15 days after its technician team and local government staff complete an investigation. The plant had an explosion on the morning of Oct 6 when the electric arc furnace was warming after relining. The plant is working to return to normal operations. Repair of the machine and damaged roof has begun. Downstream rolling mill operations are running as normal.
