The Belval plant belongs to ArcelorMittal Europe - Long Products, business unit producing long products (sections, sheet piles, rails) in ten countries in Europe and North Africa for the construction and industry sectors.
ArcelorMittal Belval (formerly known as ProfilArbed) is the world’s largest rolling mill of hot rolled steel sheet piles and has been playing a leading role in the development of piling technology for over 100 years. The first steel sheet piles were rolled in 1911 and 1912: the ‘Ransome’ and ‘Terre Rouge’ piles. Since then the production program of ArcelorMittal’s mill in Belval has undergone constant improvement and development.
Intended to slot into each other to create a sealed wall, our sheet piles are designed to retain earth or water to create quay walls, dams, underground car parks, tunnels, bridges and trunk roads. They are designed either to be an integral part of the finished product, or only to be used during construction work, to secure the excavation needed to build the structure itself.
