Wind in the sails of the energy transition:
How we support the changing energy industry
The energy transition, numerous regulatory interventions, and digitization all present exceptional challenges for the energy industry. New technologies and rising competition are also disrupting the established market situation, giving rise to totally new business processes.
Energy suppliers are now becoming agile system providers. And immense price pressure means far-reaching business transformation is a must. In addition, energy sector players must cover growing demand, putting pressure on the future viability of the electricity grid when it comes to transport and infrastructure. There are many innovative approaches to storing electricity, such as integrated energy, combining power and heat generation. All of these factors demand the full attention of energy market players.
We are on hand to provide support – as a reliable partner for our customers from the energy sector. This support starts with innovative materials for boilers and pressure vessels. We are proud of our market leadership in high-tech electrical steel products that can be used throughout the energy value chain. This enables us to make a significant contribution to energy efficiency and emission reduction.From the drive shaft to high-strength nuts and bolts that can withstand all kinds of weather: without Materials Services’ wide product range, constructing state-of-the-art wind turbines would be virtually unthinkable. Reliability and sustainability are not only the defining characteristics of our product portfolio for the energy industry; they are also at the heart of our relationships with our customers in the sector.
What’s more, we give our customers the broad-based support they need to set up their energy management, enabling them to achieve savings that can run into millions. Our experienced consultants from the Gas & Power division also provide practical assistance during negotiations on energy contracts and work hand in hand with customers to achieve new energy efficiency and supply targets.
7,000 tons That’s how heavy a wind turbine can be. If this gargantuan structure is to generate sustainable ecological electricity for the long term, it needs the best materials, ranging from steel to rods, supplied by Materials Services and its companies.
9 out of 10 wind turbine manufacturers rely on thyssenkrupp components, such as slewing bearings and rings.
The material transporting liquid gases is exposed to this extreme temperature. Of course, our portfolio also covers materials withstanding this operating temperature.
