New brochure for the wind industry

We are proud to present our new brochure: "ArcelorMittal, Steel solutions provider to the global wind energy industry".

This brochure introduces the offers from our entities supplying to the wind industry: ArcelorMittal Europe and ArcelorMittal Ringmill.

The brochure gives an overview of available ArcelorMittal steels for every part of the wind turbine:

  • SBQ steels for Foundations and Flanges which ensure durable and long–lasting foundations of the wind tower structure.
  • For the tower, quarto plate and hot rolled coils from higher strength steels for shell towers, an offer completed by the widest range of merchant bars for the secondary steel of the tower.
  • Specific beams suitable for the main frame of the nacelle and quarto plates for the structure.
  • A full range of electrical steels for the medium- and high-power generators adapted to the different types of technology. As well as steel grades which meet the EN 10106 standard, ArcelorMittal offers electrical steels with high permeability, or low losses.
  • Special seamless rolled rings with large diameter to answer the different needs for the Gearbox, Yaw & Pitch.

Focussing on a global reach

In total 18 ArcelorMittal sites located in North America, Europe and South Africa, produce steels for all major parts of a wind turbine.

These worldwide industrial operations, strategically located with easy access to sea routes, backed by an international sales and distribution network, are a key asset to answer the needs of all wind energy industry players.

Our engineering and R&D services

Our global R&D department includes more than 1,300 world-class researchers located in 11 laboratories around the world. Their experience and knowledge of steel enables us to support our customers in developing new solutions, by integrating material, design and fabrication processing know-how.

We offer a full engineering approach, from characterisation of materials till component testing. In-house equipment is available in our facilities to test improved welding methods. Modelling and simulation tools allow design and engineering challenges achieve maximum efficiency.

An active collaboration with certification institutes helps to ensure the relevance of our research.

ArcelorMittal thinks green

We work in close partnership with our customers and suppliers to help them achieve their environmental goals through innovation in steel solutions, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate their impact.

We are managing our production facilities in a responsible way and with the objective of reducing our CO2 emissions & increasing energy efficiency of our operations.

Steel is used to create more than 80% of the components required to build a wind turbine. Valued for its strength, flexibility and durability in the field, steel is also 100% recyclable, making wind energy truly renewable.
