ArcelorMittal won the ISSF Silver Award for Best New Application featuring New Market Developments for the tidal sluice gates at Mont Saint-Michel (France).
Last year, thanks to the very strong anti-corrosion properties of Industeel duplex steel UR® 2205, the UNESCO-listed tourist hot spot Mont Saint-Michel was freed from the sand and became an island again.
A dam was built on the Couesnon River to flush away sediment with the flow of water and ArcelorMittal provided steel for the dam valves, produced at Industeel Le Creusot plant.
