Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is steel used in wind turbines?


    Renewable energy would not be possible without steel. Each new megawatt of wind power requires 120 to 180 tons of steel. As well, since wind turbine components are heavy, you need a strong metal like steel to support them.

  • How much steel is used in wind turbine towers?


    A large portion of the wind industry used copper and aluminum in its wind turbines in the past. As the towers grew, requiring more metal, copper and aluminum became too expensive. In today’s turbines, steel usually makes up 66% to 79% of the total mass.

  • What type of steel is used in wind turbine towers?


    In designing wind turbine towers, fatigue and corrosion damage are the greatest challenges because of the shear force wind turbines create. Tubular steel is commonly used in the wind industry to withstand the heavy loads. It is typically made in sections that are tapered at the top. For most wind turbine support structures, A572 Grade 50 or A709 Grade 50 are used.
