Steel is one of the most important materials for the construction of new passenger and merchant ships, yachts, offshore facilities (such as production platforms, rigs and FPSOs) as well as repairs and conversions.

The extraction of crude oil and natural gas at sea involves a high level of technical complexity, as the deposits are located in hard-to-reach regions.

The steels used must be suitable for low temperatures, and have high toughness values.

UnionStahl is a reliable partner, as we have adapted our portfolio to the high material requirements:

  • Shipbuilding steel plate, 3.2 certified by all current certification agencies
  • Beaded flat steel
  • Offshore steels compliant with EN 10225 and Norsok MDS-120, with options 12, 13 and 18
  • Production of blanks to narrow tolerances, such as toothed racks for the feet of jack-up rigs.
