Great complex. With all this new infrastructure activity going on it is no surprise that Iran is now a leading steel producer and according to the Steel First magazine. However, the magazine is no friend of Iran and erroneously or maliciously stated that the steel mill is on the "Arabian Gulf". The idiotic and ignorant US editor needs reminding that the 3000 year old name for that body of water is PERSIAN GULF.

Iran's Hormozgan Steel raises output 70% year-on-year

Iranian steel producer Hormozgan Steel (Hosco) produced 80,000 tonnes of crude steel in the first month of the new Iranian year that began on March 20.

That is an increase of 70% compared with 47,000 tonnes in the corresponding month last year, according to the Iranian Mines & Mining Industries Development & Renovation Organisation (Imidro).

Hosco also produced 132,000 tonnes of direct reduction iron (DRI) in the first month of the year, up by 21% year-on-year.

Hosco is Iran’s most modern mini-mill and has a nominal capacity of 1.5 million tpy of slab.

The mini-mill is located in Bandar Abbas, one of the country’s major ports on the Persian Gulf, and came on stream in 2011.

It looks ugly, I wish they would stick to more traditional Iranian architecture, rather than a modern one. Tehran doesn't have a cultural identity...So sad whats happening there.
