The Mont Saint-Michel comes back to life with Industeel’s steel
2015-11-20

After the Eiffel tower and the Palace of Versailles, the Mont Saint-Michel is one of France’s most popular sites by number of visitors. But along the years the Couesnon River has been canalised, reducing the dispersion of the flow of water and provoking silting-up of the bay. Thanks to the strong properties of Industeel’s Duplex range of steel made in Le Creusot, the Mont Saint-Michel has become an island again. On October 31, French president François Hollande visited the island and recognised the work that has been done.

A vital initiative

The major project to restore the Mont Saint-Michel’s maritime nature was fundamental as the island was surrounded by sand. Moreover the landscape was disfigured by car parks and by the many vehicles that crossed the embankment daily. After 9 years of works, the dam on the Couesnon river allows the Mont Saint-Michel to be an island again. The dam stores the water during the incoming tides and evacuates the falling tides.

Know-how «made in Industeel»

A subsidiary of ArcelorMittal, Industeel is dedicated to the production of hot rolled steel plates, ingots and formed pieces in the largest dimension range. Specialized in carbon and stainless steels, Industeel offers a complete range of high quality steel grades designed to meet the most severe specifications.

Freeing the Mont Saint-Michel from the sand was a major challenge. The main objective was to build a dam on the Couesnon river to flush the sediments with the flow of water. The dam’s valves were built with steel from Duplex plates produced by Industeel. Duplex stainless steel is well-known and praised worldwide. It is used to build seawater desalination plants due to its very strong anti-corrosion properties. Duplex steel plates were the ideal product for the valve system of the dam.
