NLMK Group Supplies Heavy Plate for Large-Scale Wind Power Project in France
NLMK DanSteel, NLMK Group’s plant located in Denmark, a global steel company, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, has supplied heavy plate for an offshore wind farm project in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, the first major wind farm in Brittany, France. NLMK DanSteel’s high-quality steel is used to manufacture components for wind turbine towers.
The Saint-Brieuc Bay wind farm, covering an area of 75 km2, will consist of 62 wind turbines. It is scheduled for launch in 2023. With the wind farm’s capacity close to 500 MW, there will be enough energy generated to supply electricity to more than 800,000 people, a quarter of Brittany’s population.
Leveraging the benefits of a recent capacity upgrade, NLMK DanSteel is planning to actively expand its product offering for the wind power sector.
