Excluded from the proceedings are electrical transmission towers; rolled steel products not further worked; steel beams not further worked; oil pump jacks; solar, wind and tidal power generation structures; power generation facilities with a rated capacity below 100 megawatts; goods classified as “prefabricated buildings” under HTSCA 9406.00.90.30; structural steel for use in manufacturing facilities used in applications other than those described above; and products covered by the orders on certain fasteners, structural tubing, carbon steel plate and steel grating.
