    Tenaris completed the assembly of the first wind turbine at its new Wind Farm

    March 31, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Tenaris completed the assembly of the first of the 24 wind turbines that make up the Buena Ventura Wind Farm with the aim of supplying 50% of electricity to its Siderca Industrial Center in Campana, the company announced today.

      The wind farm under construction in the Buenos Aires district of Gonzáles Chaves is part of Tenaris's decarbonization strategy announced in February 2021 by the multinational.

      The assembly required the intervention of a crane of 150 meters of boom and 12 meters wide, and it was anticipated that the rest of the 23 wind turbines will be built at a rate of one per week.

      "The assembly of the first wind turbine is a milestone not only for this project, but it is the first one for Tenaris and the Techint Group globally; it is a big step in our commitment to the energy transition and Tenaris's decarbonization plan towards 2030," said Javier Martínez Álvarez, president of Tenaris Cono Sur.

      Around 280 people are working at the Gonzales Chaves site and the arrival of the remaining wind turbines will be staggered as construction progresses.

      The worldwide steel pipe producer company pointed out that the Wind Farm will enable them to supply 50% of the industrial park with electric energy, which is equivalent to "a reduction in CO2 emissions of 152,000 tons per year".

      The plan contemplates a total installed capacity of 100.8 MW (24 turbines of 4.2 MW each), with a utilization factor of 58% and a total annual electricity production of 509 GWh.

      The wind turbines will not only have the mission of providing wind energy; they will also transmit different data in real time to the control center, such as wind speed and direction, and how much electricity each wind turbine is generating.

      In parallel to their assembly, Tenaris continues to work on the medium voltage network that will carry the energy from the wind turbines to the electrical substation, which in turn will link the wind farm to the national interconnected system through the 132 kV line.
