Solar park project in Romania to expand Tenaris’s renewable energy consumption

Tenaris is moving forward with plans for the construction of a renewable solar energy project near its steel shop in Calarasi, Romania. With a capacity of 20 MW, the park will harness solar energy and convert it into green electricity through photovoltaic panels, serving as the primary energy source for the plant.

The project entails a $21.2 million USD investment, with 70% funded by Tenaris and the remainder covered by the European Union's Recovery and Resilience Plan. The solar park is scheduled to start operating by the end of 2024.

“The construction of this photovoltaic power station will play a pivotal role in Tenaris’s decarbonization efforts in Romania, aligning with the company’s goal to decrease its CO2 emissions intensity per ton of steel by 30% by 2030,” said Mihaela Popescu, Tenaris Area Manager East Europe, North Sea & Sub-Saharan Africa. 

This project is one of several that Tenaris has deployed across its global manufacturing network to leverage energy efficiency and advance its commitment to the energy transition, including a photovoltaic power generation project in China and a wind farm in Argentina .
