High quality super heavy plate maker German Dillinger Hüttenwerke is a major player in the energy transition. For the expansion of wind power capacities at sea, global energy companies rely on quality steels and the reliable supplies from Dillinger. The plates are also used, for example, in France's first offshore wind farm, which is being built off the Atlantic coast. The offshore wind farm in Saint-Nazaire, with a total capacity of 480 MW, will produce 20% of the electricity consumed in the Loire-Atlantique region. It is being built with steel from Dillinger. The heavy plate specialist has supplied around 80,000 tonnes of steel for the construction of the monopiles for the 80 wind turbines.The heavy plate specialist is well equipped to meet these special customer requirements: It has invested around EUR 700 million in recent years in setting up production facilities for the segment. Since 2016 Dillinger has been able to supply slabs with the world's highest weight per meter in the 600mm format with its CC6 continuous caster, a line with an investment value of over EUR 400 million. The rolling mill at Dillinger is also designed to break records. With a width of 5.2 meters, it is the widest in Europe. The unique architecture of the rolling mill also enables high-performance thermo mechanical rolling, which gives the steel specific material properties.With the interests of its customers always in mind, Dillinger continues to invest in the competitive technological edge of its plants. Projects currently being implemented include the modernization of pusher furnace 2 in the rolling mill to increase capacity and investment in a new edge milling machine. Additional forward-looking investments for the offshore wind market are being planned and implemented. As a result, capacities for heavy plate for wind offshore foundations will be significantly expanded in coming years to enable the company to serve this growth market comprehensively. Wind farms are playing an essential role in the decarbonization of energy supply in Europe. For example, Germany is targeting a total offshore capacity of at least 30 gigawatt by 2030, with a further 40 GW to be added by 2045. The demands placed on the plate used in offshore wind farms are high and are growing along with the increasing efficiency of the turbinesAktien-Gesellschaft der Dillinger Hüttenwerke, founded in 1685, is a world leader today in the manufacture of high-grade heavy plate steel. The Dillinger Group employs a total of around 6,200 people. High-tech plate from Dillinger is used to realize extraordinary and technically advanced projects all over the globe in the steel construction, engineering, offshore, offshore wind power, and line pipe and boiler construction sectors, as well as many others.
