1980 wurde das Elektrostahlwerk als Ersatz für die alte HOAG Flüssigphase errichtet.
The Oberhausen Steel Works were built in 1980 as successors of the old HOAG steel works.
With two 135 ton electric arc furnaces they were the largest electric steel mill in Germany.
A 6 strand continuous caster produced 400000 tons of billets a year. Most of the scrap used came from the Thyssen steel mills.
Employing 190 people the Oberhausen Steel Works were closed in 1997.
