Siemens Gamesa has lined up a Salzgitter unit to supply carbon-reduced steel for half of the turbine towers to be installed at the 1GW Thor offshore wind farm in Denmark.

More eco-friendly production processes at the German steelmaker’s Ilsenburger Grobblech heavy plate mill will ensure a CO2 reduction of at least 63% in the steel plates used in 36 out of 72 ‘GreenerTowers’ at the project.
