Tenaris has reduced its hydraulic oil consumption per ton of pipe produced by 23 percent in 2019, a saving of approximately 340,000 liters compared to the previous year, due to the implementation of a strategic industrial maintenance project. To achieve this reduction, Tenaris took several measures including the replacement of hydraulic oil systems for electric movement systems and installing new hydraulic power unit level sensor controls and alarms for early leaks detection, and improving preventive maintenance. Technical audits and trainings were also conducted to best prepare crews for spill prevention and response.

Hydraulic oil is widely used to transfer power within hydraulic machinery and equipment in different stages of the production process. As part of Tenaris’s industrial plan, launched in 2018, to increase its manufacturing efficiency, teams worked to improve total oil consumption at seven of its seamless mills in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Romania, Italy, Mexico, and the United States. Tenaris is also enhancing its on-line consumption monitoring tool for identifying further improvements.
