A 1MUSD investment in a new solar photovoltaics (PV) power generation project has paved the way for the installation of 2,246 monocrystalline silicon PV panels across the OCTG and automotive component center facilities located in Tenaris’s mill in Qingdao, China, covering approximately 17,000 square meters. The initiative, with a capacity of 1.28 MW, is expected to generate around 1.36 million kWh of electricity annually, helping to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 850 tons each year, replacing the carbon content of the local grid with clean energy generated by the solar panels.
For Oriana Palencia, life at Tenaris has been a journey of professional growth and personal fulfillment. Hailing from Venezuela, the mechanical engineer with a degree from the University of Zulia found her way to Tenaris in Argentina in 2017, and since then, she has been making big strides in the world of steel manufacturing.
As Tenaris’s first wind farm in Argentina enters full operations, the company has secured additional rights to the grid, paving the way for a second wind farm, that when combined, will almost entirely power the Siderca seamless mill in Campana with renewable energy. Both wind farms will provide competitive power without subsidies due to the exceptional wind conditions found in certain parts of Argentina.
With a deep-rooted interest in sustainability, Manuel Mosconi embarked on a journey to make a difference in the world. Armed with an engineering degree in energy from the Politecnico di Milano, he later pursued a master's in renewables and environmental sustainability, cementing his commitment to protecting the environment.
Tenaris’s mill in Veracruz, Mexico, has taken a significant step forward to contribute to the company’s 2030 decarbonization plan with the integration of a smart furnace model that uses predictive tools to analyze the metallic load of the Electric Arc Furnace (EAF).
Since he first set foot in Tenaris, Thiago Veloso, environmental leader in Brazil, has been involved in activities that aim to minimize impact to the environment. After graduating as an environmental engineer, he began his journey at the company, joining the equipment area as an intern in 2016.
