TenarisDalmine Awards Two Contracts to Tenova

5/9/2022 - In a press release today, Tenova announced it received orders for a meltshop ladle furnace and heat treatment furnace for Tenaris’ mill in Dalmine, Italy.

With this investment, the Dalmine facility will produce high-grade special steel resistant to corrosion in CO2 and hydrogen sulfide environments.
 
Tenova’s self-recuperative burners provide energy savings compared to traditional pre-heated air burners, contributing to reduced CO2 emission levels. The burners provide optimal thermal uniformity, extended combustion stability, advanced control technology, low maintenance costs, and are designed to be hydrogen-ready.
 
“The installation of a new furnace 100% H2-ready is part of Tenaris’ commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its activity, embracing innovation and technological change. Besides selecting the best energy-saving technology for the burners, we took the opportunity of this project to make a step forward,” said Giuseppe Pandini, senior project manager at Tenaris. “Working with Tenova’s engineering and R&D, we designed a plant ready to start the substitution of natural gas with hydrogen as fuel for our industrial furnaces.
 
The equipment will commence production in the first half of this year.
