Principally for girder pylons, wind turbine towers, power pylons, and antenna pylons as well as other applications. ArcelorMittal is now offering new hot rolled equal leg angles. Available with a leg length of up to 300 mm and material thickness from 18 to 35 mm. (Other material thicknesses available upon request.)
Useful for increasing rotor shaft height. Increases wind energy efficiency significantly. The height of tubular towers is limited to approximately 100 m due to its construction type, whereas truss pylons can be built higher and more economically. Cable stayed steel truss pylons, for example, can reach more than 500 m.
The largest angles until now, L 250 x 250 - achieved with the 2.5MW installation in Laasow (D), were at the limits of feasibility. Now with L 300 x 300, wind power mills with much higher rotor shafts are possible and further wind energy can now be better harnessed.
