Within the framework of the project, a tubular mill with a capacity of about 450,000 tons of single-weld pipes will be constructed at the Izhora Pipe Plant by the beginning of 2005.

Severstal General Director Alexey Mordashov told reporters today that in accordance with the project, representatives of EVRAZHOLDING would be included in the Board of Directors of the Izhora Pipe Plant, in which the two companies will hold 50 percent of the shares each.
