Swedish steelmaker SSAB and Nordec, supplier of steel frame structures and façade solutions for construction projects, have agreed on deliveries of fossil-free steel, which the latter will use for frame structures as part of buildings, façades, and bridges.

SSAB aims to deliver fossil-free steel to the market in 2026. As part of the collaboration, SSAB will initially supply small quantities of fossil-free steel for the first pilot project, and in the future quantities of fossil-free steel will increase as production ramps up.

''Co-operation with SSAB contributes greatly to our green transition strategy and in helping us to reach our emission reduction targets.”

“As a leading supplier of steel frame structures in the Nordic countries, it is extremely important for Nordec that investments related to fossil-free steelmaking proceed resolutely. Co-operation with SSAB contributes greatly to our green transition strategy and in helping us to reach our emission reduction targets,” said Kalle Luoto, CEO of Nordec Group.

“We are pleased to support Nordec's sustainability goals in the construction and bridge construction industries with our expertise.''

“We are pleased to support Nordec's sustainability goals in the construction and bridge construction industries with our expertise. The fossil-free steel we produce retains its high quality, but its climate impact is significantly lower compared to steel based on traditional blast furnace technology. This helps to reduce our customers' carbon footprint and provides a competitive advantage in the market,” said Lotta Ruottinen, sales director, SSAB Europe.
