SSAB is a growing force in the thick high-strength steel plate segment and after new research and development, Strenx performance steel has advanced with a new dimension range of up to 120 mm. The steel is one of the most impact-resistant, resilient and flexible products in SSAB’s range. This is the material used in Ludde Ingvall’s super maxi racer, the over 30-meter long racing boat CQS.
The oceans are high on the political agenda, as shown not least by the UN Ocean Conference, which was held in New York from June 5-9. The large number of interesting speakers at the conference and its side events included Per Bondemark from SSAB, who spoke about initiatives such as HYBRIT and Bothnia Bulk, two voluntary commitments in which SSAB is contributing to a better future for the oceans.
