Heavy plate for hydro-power engineering

Operators and designers of hydropower plants place the highest demands on the steel components used. Thanks to decades of experience with worldwide references, we are a qualified partner for your applications. Whether for penstocks, bifurcations and spiral pipes or turbine elements – Dillinger supplies the exact matching heavy plate. You can rely on our thermomechanically rolled DI-MC plates and high strength quenched and tempered DILLIMAX fine grain structural steels. Customer specific product solutions are standard for us, and almost all additional requirements of the specifications are feasible. On request, we also semi-fabricate the plates to customer specifications: as longitudinally welded pipe segments, edge-processed plates, flame-cut parts for a turbine stay ring or sickle plate with improved deformation properties in the thickness direction.
