The energy transition is being built on steel and Dillinger steel is once again playing a key role: Steelwind Nordenham, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dillinger, will supply 40 complete monopiles for the construction of the Yunlin offshore wind farm off the west coast of Taiwan, as well as 120 sections that will later be used locally by the Formosa Heavy Industries Corporation to assemble another 40 monopiles. The input material heavy plate in the required grades and dimensions will come from Dillinger or its subsidiary Dillinger France in Dunkirk.

The Yunlin offshore wind park will be built 8 kilometers off the west coast of Taiwan with 80 Siemens 8 MW turbines, at water depths ranging from 8.5 to 38 meters. Some of the monopiles used beyond XXL not only have the largest diameter in the world, at 10 meters at their lower end, but also a record-setting weight: due to the soil conditions they must be very long (60 to 98 meters) and therefore very heavy. With a maximum individual weight of 1,870 metric tonnes, they are the heaviest in the world.

Dr Ralf Hubo, Managing Director of Steelwind Nordenham said that “This order makes a sustainable contribution to the generation of renewable energies and ensures capacity utilization at the Nordenham site for an entire year. Production for the order will start in July; the last monopiles will leave the plant in early June 2020. The journey by ship from Nordenham to Mailiao, the port of destination in Taiwan, takes about 45 days.”
