The 77 wind turbines of Borssele III and IV, with a capacity of 730 MW, will supply approximately 825,000 Dutch households per year with environmentally friendly electricity, reducing more than 1 million tons of carbon emissions. The wind turbines are each mounted on 85-meter-long monopiles weighing 1,280 tons, at water depths between 16 and 38 meters. Dillinger supplied around 70,000 tons of thermomechanically rolled heavy plate for the monopile foundation structures, with plate thicknesses ranging from 12.7 to 88 mm. Some of the slabs reached recordbreaking weights of more than 42 tons.
