ArcelorMittal has developed a new type of steel for transformers

The leading steel producer ArcelorMittal has introduced a new category of electrical steel (GOES), which will assist the manufacturers of transformers to meet today’s environmental objectives and to achieve an optimal balance between price and performance, said by the company. “GOES is produced from hot rolled coils of silicon alloyed steel with different thicknesses of which the particular grain structure is uniformly oriented to allow magnetic conductivity with a high degree of efficiency. This feature is particularly important for manufacturers of electric transformers, highlighted by ArcelorMittal .

“We noticed a change in the purchasing decisions in the past few years – from a focus on the initial cost to concerns about the overall operating costs throughout the product life cycle,” said Sigrid Jacobs, director of direction for electric steel in ArcelorMittal Global R & D. “Customers want to achieve the best results in terms of energy consumption and environmental emissions – especially for transformers which operate continuously. Our enhanced steel GOES offers excellent solution for it,” said Sigrid Jacobs in addition.
