Did you know that steel is used to create more than 80% of the components required to build a typical wind infrastructure? Valued for its strength, flexibility and durability, steel is also 100% recyclable. ArcelorMittal is one of the European leaders in this market, having supplied steels for the manufacture of more than 10,000 onshore and offshore wind towers since 2005.
