Cokerie d´Ougrée

Cokerie d´Ougrée

The coke plant in the suburbs of Liege was built in 1957 to supply the neighbouring blast furnaces in Ougrée and Seraing, part of John Cockerill company (former "Société Anonyme d´Ougrée-Marihaye").

In 1967, two Krupp-Koppers batteries were put into operation and in 1983 another pair of Coppée batteries was built.

The production was shutdown for good in 2014, when the plant was part of ArcelorMittal group. Although the American company Oxbow Mining was interested in to keep the production running, all the negotiations failed in the end.
