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.
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.
Tenaris participated at the OMV Group Supplier Sustainability & Innovation Day geared toward advancing collaboration with suppliers to enhance sustainability along the whole value chain.
