NLMK DanSteel, NLMK Group’s plant in Denmark, has supplied its heavy plate for the Wind Float Atlantic project. Wind Float Atlantic is the first semi-submersible floating wind farm in the world located off the north coast of Portugal. NLMK DanSteel’s high-quality steel heavy plates are used in the production of floating platforms and foundations.

Wind Float Atlantic comprises three wind turbines 8.4 MW each, mounted on floating platforms. The third platform was installed in July, and the wind farm will start operating at full capacity. The wind farm will be able to generate enough energy to supply 60,000 households in Portugal. Wind Float Atlantic will save almost 1.1 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

With the aim to participate in such innovative offshore projects, NLMK DanSteel has improved its technological process of heavy plate production and developed a special chemical composition of high-strength steel that ensures strong performance under high static and dynamic loads at low temperatures. Together with the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), the plant has successfully completed product certification.
