The plant will also supply liquefied industrial gases to Nucor and other wholesale partners in the area.

Capable of producing 1.2 million tonnes of steel products per year, the new steel mill and the air separation facility marks a significant investment for Nucor.

The plate mill and air separation facility are expected to be operational in late 2022.
