Steel sheet piles
Steel sheet piles offer a timely and cost-effective solution for many of the problems modern ports are currently facing. A sheet pile wall placed in front of an existing quay wall allows the harbour bed to be dredged to depths required by modern vessels.
Sheet piles have also proven their efficiency when it comes to the construction of new ports. The straightforward installation and reduced workforce requirement allows the new port to be operational in a short period of time.
Through constant innovation, today’s U and Z shaped piles form some of the most advanced solutions for constructing and deepening harbour walls.
To offer the best products on the market which meet the requirements of the dynamic shipping industry, ArcelorMittal’s research team is continuously developing and redefining their sheet pile range. The latest development includes the addition of the GU 11 N range to the U section family in 2017.
With their new EcoSheetPile™ & EcoSheetPile™ Plus brands, ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling provides steel sheet piles with a significantly reduced carbon footprint produced via the EAF-route using 100% recycled, recyclable, and reusable steel, and - in the case of EcoSheetPile™ Plus - 100% renewable energy. The EcoSheetPile™ Plus range is part of ArcelorMittal's 'XCarb® Recycled and renewably produced' brand.
With more than 100 years of experience in the development and production of steel sheet piles, ArcelorMittal offers the most extensive product range and the highest level of expertise in the field of foundation solutions and harbour structures.
