Located on the coast 4 miles from the port of Tubarao, ArcelorMittal's Tubarao plant is their largest steelmaking unit in the Americas. The plant has the capacity to produce 8.0 Mtpa of hot metal and 7.6 Mtpa of crude steel. The integrated facility also has 4.0 Mtpa of hot rolled coil capacity and can also produce cold rolled and galvanised coil. Tubarao is a relatively low cost plant. Despite not using any captive raw materials, its location 5 kilometres from Tubarao port, its partial ownership of its small port, and its ability to efficiently produce more energy than it requires all contribute to lowering its cost base.
