Essar Steel Minnesota released a new statement about their construction progress. On Friday, September 7th, the company announced a temporary slowdown in work at the site in Nashwauk. Here's the latest:
"We want to clarify again that Essar has temporarily adjusted the level of construction activity at the site to re-align it with the timing of supply of equipment and other deliverables," the statement said.
"This is not an uncommon occurrence on large or even small construction projects. Please know that there are over 100 skilled construction workers at the site working as hard as ever unloading steel and supplies, erecting steel, pouring concrete, moving earth and doing a host of other activities. "
"Also, there are over 150 Essar employees based in Minnesota that spend time every day tirelessly working to bring this historic project to life. We expect to be ramping up construction again soon."
