Bobrek coke works in the middle of Bytom town district is the very last existent fragment of once important "Huta Bobrek". Steelworks were founded in the middle of 19th century and the pig iron production wasn´t stopped even by two world wars. Last blast furnace was dismantled in the beginning of 90´s.
Today is the last working battery owned by privat company Carbo-Koks.
The uniqueness of this plant is in coal bunker charging system, which operates with two vertical charging buckets/skips. Unfortunatelly this technology is getting old these days and willl be modernized withing future years.
