The Glenbrook Steel Mill, the only steel mill in New Zealand, is owned by New Zealand Steel, a subsidiary of Bluescope Steel. The Glenbrook Steel Mill is located approximately 60 kilometres south of Auckland. New Zealand Steel is owned by BlueScope Steel.
New Zealand Steel's Glenbrook steel mill is the second largest domestic consumer of New Zealand coal, consuming approximately 800,000 tonnes a year. Coal for the plant is supplied from the Huntly East mine and the Rotowaro Opencast Mine, accounting for 95% and 25% respectively of the two mines. Both mines are owned by Solid Energy, a government-owned coal mining company. (The Huntly Power Station, which is owned and operated by Genesis Energy, is the largest consumer).
