MIDREX® Plants are able to perform reliably at or above rated capacity in climates that range from the dry, sandy heat of Saudi Arabia to the frigid cold of Canada and Russia. To date only three MIDREX® Modules have ever been decommissioned, the two small demonstration plants commissioned in Portland, Oregon in 1969 and the first full sized commercial scale plant commissioned in Georgetown, South Carolina, USA in 1971. Much of the equipment from the Georgetown facility remains in operation at sister plants operated by the same owner.

This is a partial map of reference plants.  There are additional MIDREX Plants licensed by Kobe Steel, Ltd. Of Japan.
