Tenaris Starts New Premium Line at Algoma Tubes in Canada
Tenaris’s new premium connections line at its Algoma Tubes mill in Sault Ste Marie in Ontario is now operational, adding capacity and product range to the company’s operations in Canada. Tenaris recently completed its first commercial order following the line’s production start last month. The premium line was part of an overall $36M CAD investment first announced in July 2019, and its development was also supported by contributions from the federal and provincial governments.
With the investment, Tenaris threads high quality OCTG products, such as TenarisHydril Wedge and Blue Series connections, expands capacity for sour service grades and adds new diameters to the company’s product portfolio.
Tenaris is currently carrying out an CAD 81 million investment, also supported by the three levels of government, to centralize its pipe production, incorporating new and upgraded equipment, including the installation of an electric resistance weld line, offering our oil and gas customers additional grades of welded pipe and premium connections. With ERW and seamless production under a single roof, Tenaris will also improve productivity, enhance quality and reliability processes, and streamline supply chain logistics in Canada.
