Wednesday, July 29, 2015
The 17th annual Swedish Steel Prize, presented by steel company SSAB, will be awarded in November to recognize and reward the most creative, innovative products or solutions that utilize high-strength steel. Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 prize, with a deadline of August 15. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden.
The theme for this year’s competition is “Improve to attract the future,” designed to focus on smart and sustainable solutions.
“With this theme, we want to emphasize the importance of the continuous product development needed to build a more sustainable world,” says Gregoire Parenty, chairman of the Swedish Steel Prize jury and head of market development at SSAB.
Since the competition began in 1999, SSAB has received more than 800 nominations. International competition increases each year with more and more countries being represented from North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
The 2014 Swedish Steel Prize was awarded to truck manufacturer Belaz from Belarus for its innovative new construction for axle suspension and slewing bearings used to build the world’s largest dump truck.
