coast. Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH and Salzgitter Mannesmann Grobblech GmbH are delivering 50.000 tonnes of thermomechanically rolled plates for the Spanish group Navantia SA. From these 62 jackets, foundation structures, and 186 piles for mounting the jackets on the seabed will be built for the offshore wind farm Saint-Brieuc off the Brittany coast. The supply of heavy plates to Navantia has started in August 2020 and will be completed in the spring of 2021. The plates have a maximum thickness of 80 mm, a width of up to 4.100 mm and a length of more than 12 meters. The raw material derives from sister companies within the Salzgitter-Group.
The wind farm has a capacity of around 500 megawatt and will thus provide clean energy for more than 835.000 people. The operator and owner of Saint-Brieuc is Iberdrola SA, the leading Spanish utility group.
