ArcelorMittal supplies XCarb sheet piles for Norwegian port

From its plant in Belval in Luxembourg, ArcelorMittal is supplying “XCarb”-certified sheet piling to one of Norway’s largest and most important fishing ports, Kallanish hears from the company.

Local company Pelagia Egersund Seafood is currently expanding its fishing port in Egersund. The construction of the new port infrastructure will be based on a circular cell structure using more than 2,000 tonnes of AS500 straight sheet piles from ArcelorMittal Belval.

The sheet piles for this project are made from 100% recycled steel and with 100% renewable electricity, ArcelorMittal claims. They carry the group’s proprietary XCarb recycled and renewable manufactured label.

XCarb has a global warming potential of 370 kilogrammes of CO2 equivalents per tonne of steel externally, certified by the EcoSheetPile Plus EPD. Life cycle assessment shows that the embedded carbon footprint of EcoSheetPile Plus is only one fifth of that achieved by ArcelorMittal’s competitors, the company claims.
