NLMK’s grain-oriented (GO) steel is a rolled product with improved electromagnetic properties, available in thicknesses from 0.15 mm.
NLMK’s GO steel is used in the production of power, distribution, and instrument transformers. Power, distribution, and instrument transformers are used in thermal power plants (TPPs) and nuclear power plants (NPPs). In addition, transformers are installed at power plants running on renewable energy sources: wind, hydro, and solar energy.
Distribution transformers are essential for the electricity supply of cities and metropolitan areas. Distribution transformers convert electricity according to voltage: they increase it at the point of production (to reduce the load on power lines) and reduce it at the point of consumption to the values required by customers. This makes it possible to supply power to a variety of facilities: from household appliances to residential and commercial complexes, shopping and business centres, industrial enterprises, and road infrastructure.
NLMK’s GO steel is used to manufacture equipment for Metals and Mining, including substations and power units, and to ensure the performance of metallurgical equipment, such as steelmaking units and rolling mills.
