Belval steel works, Luxemburg, 1930s
ArcelorMittal Belval (formerly known as ProfilArbed) is the world’s largest rolling mill of hot rolled steel sheet piles and has been playing a leading role in the development of piling technology for over 100 years. The first steel sheet piles were rolled in 1911 and 1912: the ‘Ransome’ and ‘Terre Rouge’ piles. Since then the production program of ArcelorMittal’s mill in Belval has undergone constant improvement and development to include U- with widths of up to 750 mm (AU™) and and Z-piles up to 700 / 770 mm wide (AZ®-700, AZ®-770).
ArcelorMittal Differdange produces the biggest HZM™ sections to form the most competitive high modulus combined wall system.
Following the merger with Mittal Steel in 2006, the U-type piles produced by ArcelorMittal’s mill in Dabrowa, Poland (formerly Huta Katowice), are also marketed through ArcelorMittal Sheet Piling .
ArcelorMittal’s piling series are especially suitable for building reliable structures rapidly and cost-effectively. They are characterised by excellent section modulus to weight ratios and high moments of inertia. Steel sheet piles are used worldwide for the construction of quays walls and breakwaters in harbours, locks, and for bank reinforcement on rivers and canals. Other applications are temporary cofferdams in land and in water, permanent bridge abutments, retaining walls for underpasses or underground car parks, impervious containment walls, etc.
The Technical Department offers comprehensive services throughout the world with customised support to all the parties involved in the design, specification and installation of sheet and bearing piles, e.g. consulting engineers, architects, regional authorities, contractors, academics and their students.
Services provided free of charge by ArcelorMittal’s in-house design and support teams:
- preliminary designs of complete solutions including anchorage systems and lifetime calculations,
- project optimizations offered to end-users to provide the most competitive piling package,
- elaboration of detailed project layouts and supply chains,
- assistance and recommendations on pile installation methods and driving equipment,
- promotion of “green sheet piles”, including Life Cycle Assessment.
Please note that the legal responsibility for the final structure remains with the owner.
