U.S. Steel ‘Evaluating Potential Restart of Keetac’ by End of Year
KEEWATIN, Minn. – U.S. Steel says they are “evaluating a potential restart of Keetac by year-end.”
The site has sat idle since May of this year due to the coronavirus pandemic leaving over 300 workers still without a job.
“We continue to evaluate the timing around a potential restart of Keetac. Seasonality is a part of that decision process,” a company spokesperson said Friday.
Meanwhile, U.S. Steel owned Minntac reopened production lines 6 and 7 at the end of July.
