NLMK Lipetsk has developed a new electrical steel grade to produce high-technology components, for green energy projects such as wind power plants.
The product’s first shipments were made to NovaWind, which is setting up wind farms in southern Russia. NovaWind plans to build a total capacity of 1GW by 2023 and requires electric generator engines. The engines will be built with domestically produced electrical steel.
The new product will be made available worldwide along with other products made by NLMK Dan Steel, a plate supplier to the European wind generation sector.
