Salzgitter (euro adhoc) - Salzgitter Group company Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH
(ILG) has received an order from Siemens Wind Power A/S to supply around 15,200
t of steel plate to construct the tubular steel masts for the Meerwind offshore
wind farm. In 2011 ILG was awarded an order from AMBAU GmbH for materials for
the mast foundations. This new contract means that ILG will be supplying all of
the steel, totaling more than 85,000 t, for the masts for the wind farm which
covers an area of 42 km² out in the North Sea.

The steel will be used to manufacture 80 wind turbine masts commissioned by
Siemens Wind Power. Production of the plate, which will be supplied with seams
pre-welded and dressed, has already begun. Just-in-time deliveries to the wind
turbine builders in Denmark will commence in September. 

Construction of the wind farm is scheduled to start in late 2012, with
commissioning due by the end of 2013.

These orders underscore the high expertise and competitive strengths of
Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH as a supplier to the offshore wind industry, as the
