thyssenkrupp Electrical Steel / Klimahafen Gelsenkirchen

thyssenkrupp Electrical Steel is the only European and one of the world's leading manufacturers of energy-efficient grain-oriented electrical steel - a key product for the energy transition. We have set ourselves the goal of operating our production in a climate-neutral manner in the future - with green hydrogen, among other measures. Already today we are supplying transformer manufacturers and grid operators with bluemint® powercore® with reduced CO2 emissions. This is how we help to decarbonize the energy industry.

The lead project of the corporate initiative "Klimahafen Gelsenkirchen" also deals with the decarbonization of energy-intensive operations on the basis of green hydrogen. To this end, connection options to a future pipeline and decentralized generation options using an electrolyzer are being examined. The aim of the initiative is to become climate- neutral as quickly as possible.
