Ørsted and Dillinger, a European heavy steel plate producer, re-iterate the strength of their partnership by agreeing that Ørsted will be offered the first production of lower-emission steel from Dillinger, subject to availability and commercial terms and conditions.
The steel plates form a part of the offshore wind monopile foundations and are intended to be used for future projects. Taking the current technology outlook into account, the reduction of process-related carbon emissions from production is expected to be around 55–60% compared to conventional heavy plate steel production. Foundations are one of the largest sources of carbon emissions in an offshore wind farm’s life cycle, accounting for 21%.

Ørsted will procure significant volumes of regular heavy plate steel from 2024, giving the company access to and visibility of the raw material needed for its projects while providing Dillinger with the needed support to accelerate investments in new lower-emission steel production. Ørsted expects to be able to procure lower-emission steel produced at Dillinger’s plant in Dillingen, Germany, from 2027–2028.
