NLMK Supplies NGO Steel for Rostov Region’s First-Ever Wind Farm

NLMK Lipetsk, NLMK Group’s flagship production site, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor has delivered electrical non-grain oriented (NGO, or dynamo) steel to Ruselprom (Russian Electrotechnical Group), a leading manufacturer and supplier of electrical machinery in Russia. NLMK’s NGO steel will be used to manufacture generators for the Azov wind farm, Rostov region’s first-ever renewable energy project.

The 90 MW Azov wind farm will generate around 300 GWh of clean energy each year, offsetting around 260,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum.

NLMK steel will be used to make wound rotor induction generators, with a capacity of 3.5 MW each. The use of NLMK NGO steel with low magnetic properties will enable a 10-15% increase in the energy efficiency of Ruselprom’s electrical machinery.

Ilya Guschin, NLMK Group Vice President, Sales, said: “NLMK Group and Ruselprom have a long-standing partnership, which stretches back for more than 20 years. The high quality of our steel delivers additional competitive advantages for our client, fueling their leadership in the electrical machinery market.” 

NLMK Group produces non-grain oriented (dynamo) electrical steel at its facility in Lipetsk. NLMK’s share in Russia’s output of this high-tech product totaled 81% in 2018.

NLMK Group welcomes all steel industry professionals to visit its stand at Metal-Expo'2019, the 25th Jubilee International Exhibition, November 12-15, Hall 75, VDNHa, Moscow, Russia. Stand N 1C02.
