New Zealand Steel is the only steel mill in New Zealand producing flat rolled steel products for the building, construction, manufacturing and agricultural industries. The Glenbrook Steel Mill is located approximately 60 kilometres south of Auckland. New Zealand Steel is owned by BlueScope Steel.[1]

Coal supply

New Zealand Steel's Glenbrook steel mill is the second largest domestic consumer of New Zealand coal, consuming approximately 800,000 tonnes a year.[2] Coal for the plant is supplied from the Huntly East mine and the Rotowaro Opencast Mine, accounting for 95%[3] and 25% respectively of the two mines.[4] (The Huntly Power Station, which is owned and operated by Genesis Energy, is the largest consumer).
