National  Iranian Steel Company at a Glance

National Iranian Steel Company with more than half  century experience, is one of the main player in mining and steel  industries of Iran . 

History

In 1959 a substantial step was taken by the government towards setting a technical organization to establish the steel industry under title of      "National Iranian  Steel Corporation" which used BF technology For steel  production.
In 1972, the National Iranian Steel Industries Corporation  was established to supply and produce Steel through DRI process and to supply needed iron ore .
In 1979 , after the victory of the Islamic revolution , The National  Iranian Steel Corporation and the National Iranian Steel Industries  Corporation were merged to form the National Iranian Steel Company (NISCO ).
Thus , the most specialized company active in the fields of  steel  making and mining was born.
At the beginning of 2001 , NISCO was the only company specialized  and active  in field of management and construction of steel mills , as well as implementation of mining and steel making projects in Iran . Among  them  is the  Mobarakeh  Steel complex , as a major  steel producer in  Middle  East  which was implemented  and  commisioned  by  NISCO   .

Some other Steel making and mining projects which have been implemented  by NISCO are:
A – Steel industries
Esfahan steel mill  Co.
Khozestan steel  Co.
Iran Alloy steel  Co.
Khorasan  steel Co.
Azarbaijan  steel Co.
Hormozgan  steel Co
B – Mining industries
Chadoor  maloo mining and Industrial Co.
Golegohar Mining and Industrial Co.
Iran Central Iron ore Co.
C – Many coal mining and  steel making related projects were implemented by Nisco too.

In  accordance with the Article (6) of the law for " Centralization  of Industry  and  mine affairs  " approved by  the parliament, the Iranian mines and mining Industries Development    and Renovation  Organization ( IMIDRO) was established In 2000, and NISCO as one of its major subsidiaries was assigned to  Implement , supervise and commission the  following  steel  expansion projects :
- Iran  Alloy steel co (Yazd )
- Azarbaijan  steel Co .
- Khorasan steel Co .
- Maybood  steel Co .
- Zagroos  steel Co .
- Ahwaz pipe & tube Rolling mill
- Iranian  National steel Industries  Group
- Sangan  iron ore mobilization  project
- Graphite Electrode  project
According  to the Article (44) of the Constitution  law , all  the  above companies  were privatized .
 Moreover the  execution of  the seven  Provincial  steel Projects were  assigned to NISCO   .
The seven – steel projects  which are constructing in  seven regions  of the country are  as follows:
1- Sepid dasht steel project        in Chaharmahal- Bakhtiari province
2- Nairiz  steel project                in Fars  Province
3- Shadegan  steel project         in  Khozestan Province
4- Mianeh steel project              in  Easter Azarbaijan  Province
5- Qhaenat  steel project              in  Southern  khorasan  Province
6- Sabzevar  steel project           in  khorasan Province
7- Baft steel project                    in  Kerman Province


NISCO  seven  provincial   steel   projects.

Item Steel  project   capacity product   direct  employment
1 Sepid dasht steel project  0.8-1Mty slab 1000
2 Nairiz  steel project 0.8-1Mty Billet/bloom 1000
3 Shadegan  steel project 0.8-1Mty Billet/bloom 1000
4 Mianeh steel project 0.8-1Mty Billet/bloom 1000
5 Qhaenat  steel project 0.8-1Mty Billet/bloom 1000
6 Sabzevar  steel project 0.8-1Mty Billet/bloom 1000
7 Baft steel project 0.8-1Mty Billet/bloom 1000


Each seven provincial project will produce 0.8-1mty crude steel after coming  on stream , and would  create  1000 direct   jobs.
Al together , around 7 Mty will be  added to the country,s crude steel production  And this would led to 7000 direct jobs  after  being commissioned.
One  of the important aspects  of the seven – provincial projects is that all consultancy  and engineering services , as  well  as  , executive activities  are     carring   out now  by   private  consulting  and   domestic  contractors ,  Accordingly  after being  commissioned,  the project  not  only would  meet  the steel  rolling mill demand for raw  materials  but also , by considering the private sectors role in  the project , they  would pave  the way   for  private  sectors , growth  and  advances ,  boosting  the engineering  executive  potentials  and  enhancing  domestic  technical  Know-how  .

NISCO,s current activities and other  missions  are :

1-  Enhancing the effectiveness of human resources in mining and steel industries.
2- Promotion  and adaption of mining and steel industries with the environmental requirements.
3-  To follow up mining industries development policies according to Iron and steel master plan.
4- To carry out relevant studies to establish two  giant steel
Mills with 10 Mty capacity in Persian Gulf region.
5- To attract foreign and domestic investment in steel  industries.
