8. Relevant Steel Grades with EQ70 Steel:
Marine engineering steel NVE690 is EQ70 grade steel of American standard. After testing, the performance indexes of the steel can meet the requirements of users. This steel grade is the first Marine steel successfully [SCALE STEEL]developed by Wugang, marking a new breakthrough in the research and development of Marine steel.
Marine platforms (including oil production platforms and drilling platforms) are subject to the erosion and destruction of natural forces such as waves, submarine earthquakes and low temperature, so the technical specifications of steel are very high, and the technical standards of steel used in key parts such [SCALE STEEL]as rack and pile leg are more demanding. In order to realize the localization of steel for offshore platform, Wugang began to develop 140mm thick tempered and tempered high strength steel A514GrQ in 2008, which took 10 months to achieve success. At the same time of mass production of 140mm thick A514GrQ, Wugang quickly put into the research and development of the steel with greater thickness. In 5 months, we have developed A514GrQ of 150mm, 180mm, 215mm and other thickness specifications, and successfully passed the CERTIFICATION of [SCALE STEEL]ABS Classification Society. This means that China's offshore platform with high strength steel series all thick plate, wugang all can produce independently.
