Ovako is a supplier to advanced niches of the fasteners market. This includes anchor bolts and tension threaded bars for construction foundations, stud-bolts for Oil & gas, bolts for wings and towers in Wind power, U-Bolts for heavy vehicle suspensions as well as certain marine engine applications.

Ovako is a supplier of many different types of steel grades, based on three different metallurgical routes. We can supply continuously cast steel with different starting formats, and also ingot cast steel for more advanced demands such as API 20E BSL 3 bolts for Oil & gas. We also have a particular strength in being able to supply high strength steel with extra high demands om impact strength, as covered by our family of SZ-Steel, some of which impact tested down to -101 °C.

In addition to the Ovako niche range of fastener steel products, the Nippon Steel Corporation Group offers a wide range of additional supply capabilities, addressing many larger segments of this market.

Reducing global CO2 emissions demands smarter product solutions and requires rethinking on many levels: more performance benefits per kilogram of product, less raw materials, and substituting fossil fuel energy sources with primarily fossil-free electricity.
