Increasing rotor shaft height, wind energy efficiency increases significantly. The height of tubular towers is limited to approx. 100 m due to its construction type whereas truss pylon can be built higher and more economically; cable stayed steel truss pylons, for example, can reach more than 500 m.
The largest angles until now, L 250 x 250, achieved with the 2.5MW installation in Laasow (D), were at the limits of feasibility. Now with L 300 x 300, wind power mills with much higher rotor shaft are possible and further potential of wind energy can now be better harnessed.

Equal leg angles: L 300 x300 and L 250 x 250
Aimed principally for girder pylons, towers for wind power mills, power pylons and antenna pylons and many other applications, ArcelorMittal is now offering new hot rolled equal leg angles.
With a leg length of up to 300 mm and material thickness from 18 up to 35 mm, other material thicknesses are possible upon agreement.
