Energy

All segments of the energy sector, including nuclear, wind power, electric and natural gas, demand steel for infrastructure. Steel is also used for resource extraction, such as in offshore platforms, earth-moving and quarrying equipment, cranes, and forklifts. 

In addition to these, many other energy projects rely on large amounts of steel:

  • oil and gas wells and platforms

  • pipelines

  • electricity power turbine components

  • electricity pylons: 

  • wind turbines

  • transmission towers

  • electromagnets

  • transformer cores

  • electromagnetic shields
