These will be an essential part of the sector gates system which will help the river Couesnon to wash out the sand from the Mont Saint Michel area.
Duplex 2205 has been selected as the material due to its abrasion corrosion resistance in such an environment.
Built to last
Duplex stainless steels have been developed by Industeel since the 70s. They are an excellent alternative to austenitic steels for many applications. Their low Nickel and Molybdenum contents make them a cost effective solution, while their corrosion and mechanical properties (twice more than austenitics) are excellent. Industeel is the leader in the production of duplex quarto plates, with 40% of market shares.
Industeel is specialised in advanced technology carbon steel, alloy and stainless steel plates. Operating three complementary industrial plants in France and Belgium, Industeel also has a network of 40 sales offices throughout the world.
The first installations of the duplex plates for Mont Saint Michel were planned for September 2007.
