Taller wind towers with low carbon steels containing niobium

With Niobium solutions, steel delivers advantages over alternative wind tower materials like concrete structural plastics and composites. Ferrous steels provide improved fatigue and fracture strength, as well as toughness at low temperatures, and improved weldability for taller turbine installations. Additionally, low carbon niobium-containing structural steel meets the improved mechanical properties civil engineers, fabricators, and designers of wind farms seek to achieve improved energy generation efficiencies.
