SSAB: Time to apply for the Swedish Steel Prize 2017

The Swedish Steel Prize is an international prize that honors the art
of engineering and innovation. Now it's time to apply, the very
latest on February 1, 2017.


The Swedish Steel Prize can be won by anyone who has developed a
method or product that utilizes the full potential of SSAB's branded
offering, including steels optimized for high-strength,
wear-resistance, tooling, protection and combinations of these. This
may relate, for example, to new technical design features, lighter
products, simplified production, longer life, improved performance or
beneficial environmental effects. The materials used must be within
the range of materials made by SSAB, but need not necessarily be
produced by SSAB.

Last time the jury had entries from 28 countries to evaluate. One of
the past winners is the Belarusian company Belaz, who built the
world's largest dump truck with the help of high-strength steel. And
it's not just the big companies and organizations that enter and get
nominated. In 2014, the Finnish innovator Timo Penttimies was
nominated for designing a new, innovative and cost-effective roller
feeder for forest harvesters.

"There are, and will be, many new and even experimental ways of
utilizing our premium steels. My hope is to see as many of those
products or methods as possible among the applications. We are
looking for innovative steel solutions that really push the limits of
steel - alone or in a combination with another material or even with
a digital twist," says Eva Petursson, chairman of the Swedish Steel
Prize jury and head of SSAB's strategic R&D.

The Swedish Steel Prize winner will be announced at the Stockholm
Waterfront Congress Centre on May 11, 2017. The winner will receive a
statuette by the sculptor Jörg Jeschke and a cash prize of SEK
100,000 that SSAB encourages to be donated to a charity of the
winner's choice.
