Nucor Receives Permit for Louisiana Project
The DRI facility is the first phase of a multi-phase plan that may include a coke plant, blast furnace, pellet plant and steel mill. The project's first phase will create 150 permanent Nucor jobs that earn an average annual salary of $75,000, plus benefits. During peak construction, 500 jobs will be directly created. If the additional phases of the project are constructed, Nucor could have a total investment of over $3 billion and increase permanent employment to more than 1,000.
