Siemens wind towers to use Tata steel plates

Tata Steel will supply 25,000 tonnes of profiled steel plate for Siemens (NYSE: SI) wind towers. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed, but Tata Steel said the order is worth an eight-figure pound sum, or at least $15 million.

Tata Steel will deliver 25,000 tonnes of profiled plate, cut into the desired shape, between April and September of 2012. The steel will be used to build about 150 onshore wind turbine towers.

The steel will be manufactured at Tata Steel’s plate mills in Europe before being cut to size and edge profiled at the company’s dedicated wind tower hub in Scunthorpe, England. The steel will be delivered to a fabricator which will form the plate into round sections before they are welded together to form the turbine tower.
