Corus has given its Port Talbot steel works another multi-million pound boost.
It has announced a £9million investment in the coke-making section - just weeks after it confirmed it would be spending £60million on an energy recovery plant for its Basic Oxygen Steelmaking facility.
The new cash will be spent on a quenching tower, which cascades water over coking fuel as it comes out of the ovens.
Company bosses say it will help Port Talbot move closer to its production target of five million tonnes of steel slab a year.
Heavy end general works manager Jon Ferriman said: "The investment is another step in creating a sustainable steel industry in South Wales.
"The investment represents an important vote of confidence in Welsh steel-making, as Corus is integrated into the Tata Steel Group."
