East Kentucky Power Cooperative works with Nucor Corp. to expand Kentucky Steel Mill

Nucor Corp. recently announced its plans to move forward with a $650 million, 70-job expansion at its still mill near Ghent, Kentucky. East Kentucky Power Cooperative worked closely with Nucor officials to support the phase II expansion of the steel mill. This second phase of the project will increase the mill’s annual capacity from 1.6 million tons of coiled sheet steel to approximately 3 million tons. The project is ultimately expected to provide affordable, reliable energy and create additional jobs for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
