  • Steel for wind energy

Wind energy

ArcelorMittal’s steels have been successfully used in the manufacture of more than 10,000 onshore and offshore wind turbine towers since 2005.

ArcelorMittal produces an extensive portfolio of steels which are used in the major components of a wind farm: foundations, tower, nacelle, generator, gearbox, yaw, pitch and mooring ropes.

Long Products

ArcelorMittal Europe - Long Products' offer includes:

  • SBQ (Special Bar Quality) steels for foundations and flanges
  • Merchant bars for the secondary steel of the tower
  • Ring-rolled forgings for large-diameter connector rings 
  • Mooring ropes: sheated spiral strand wire, sockets and offshore transportation reels

ArcelorMittal offers a large variety of specific beams suitable for the main frame of the nacelle. Quarto plates can also be used to manufacture this structure.

Flat Products

ArcelorMittal Europe - Flat Products produces:

  • Plates for onshore and offshore wind towers
  • High-strength hot rolled coils for onshore bolted towers
  • Offshore and structual steels for wind turbine foundations
  • Electrical steels for both medium- and high- power generators

ArcelorMittal’s heavy plates are available in a large range of qualities and dimensions, which can meet the requirements of pioneering projects in the floating offshore wind segment. Duplex stainless steel
plates can also be used to house the substations for offshore wind farms.

ArcelorMittal also supplies hot rolled coils of higher strength steels such as Amstrong®. These steels are suitable for taller structures and shell towers. Quarto plates can also be used to manufacture the nacelle.

Our electrical steels offer includes the M400-50A grade, which is a standard today, lower loss electrical steels and specific highly permeable grades.

Industeel

  • Extra-heavy quarto plates
  • Special ingots for forged rings
  • Duplex stainless steels.
