Nucor has introduced Elcyon, the company's new sustainable heavy gauge steel plate product made specifically to meet the growing demands of America's offshore wind energy producers.
Nucor will manufacture Elcyon at the company's new, $1.7 billion Nucor Brandenburg steel mill in Kentucky, which produced its first steel plate at the end of December 2022. Elcyon is a clean steel product made using Nucor's recycled scrap-based electric arc furnace manufacturing process. The new mill is located in the middle of the largest steel plate-consuming region in the country and will be able to produce 97% of plate products consumed domestically, with a potential output of 1.2 million tons of steel annually. Nucor expects to offer Elcyon in a wide range of plate grades and sizes, working closely with end users to meet their unique needs and specifications.
