Head of Tecpetrol’s Energy Transition division, he shares the progress the team has made in helping to decarbonize the Techint Group industrial activities and the many opportunities and challenges he foresees for the next steps.
The company has developed its first wind farm in Argentina, and Techint E&C is building it to supply 50% of the electricity demand at Tenaris’ Industrial Center in Campana. Four wind turbine generators have already been installed. Ternium will also invest to build another wind farm to source electricity for its Argentine operations.
TechEnergy Ventures has invested in Svante, a start-up that has developed technology to make it more efficient to capture carbon in hard-to-abate industries. The growth potential is immense at a time when the world is seeking to cut emissions.
