We are one of the leading construction companies in Argentina with almost 70 years’ experience working in the country’s main industrial sectors. We have taken part in some of the most complex technological projects in Argentine history, spanning the principal market segments. These include flagship developments such as the Zárate-Brazo Largo bridge and the Loma de la Lata gas pipeline; the Veladero gold mine and the Los Caracoles and Punta Negra hydroelectric plants in San Juan province, as well as the extension of the Subway Line H in the city of Buenos Aires.
Our Engineering Center in Buenos Aires is one of the most sophisticated on the continent, equipped with the capabilities to develop basic and detail engineering as well as 3D modeling for conventional oil & gas facilities, unconventional gas processing plants, pipelines and compression stations, refineries, power plants, hydroelectric developments and mining infrastructure.
In 1945, we completed our first project in Italy: an 80-km pipeline for NATO. Since then, we have grown to become one of the country’s leading engineering and construction companies.
Our Engineering Center in Milan is considered a pole of excellence throughout the Techint Group. It offers high added value services in areas where it has built up extensive experience, such as oil & gas, refineries, energy and infrastructure, particularly in the healthcare and hospitals sector. Over the past decade, the Engineering Center has expanded its range of services to include green technology and environmental consulting solutions, applied innovation technologies, asset management, and optimization studies.
We use state-of-the-art project design software and simulation tools developed exclusively in association with the Polytechnic of Milan.
Established in Sao Paolo in 1947, the company today has over 1,100 successful works to its name, with sales offices in Rio de Janeiro, an Equipment Management Park in Aruja, also home to the Techint training center in Brazil, and an offshore unit in Pontal do Paraná, which was upgraded and expanded in 2012. We have laid over 8,000 km of pipes throughout the country, representing some 60% of the national network, and we have provided services to all the Brazilian government refineries, cooperating with their expansion and modernization programs.
We are actively involved in several projects in the country’s main production and manufacturing segments, from oil & gas, petrochemical plants and refineries, mining and energy, to industrial plants.
We began operations in Chile in 1952, and have since then focused on developing projects for the mining and oil & gas segments. We have taken part in the country’s principal pipeline construction and laying projects, including major aqueducts and oreducts for several mining operations as well as oil and gas pipelines.
The company has played an active role in the country’s principal infrastructure projects since 1948, completing major undertakings such as the Northern Peru Pipeline, which transports crude oil from the rainforests in the north east to the north coast, and the Camisea Gas Transmission System, running from the Cusco rainforest across the Andes mountain range to the city of Lima.
We opened our offices in Lima in 2009 and have since successfully carried out a large number of oil & gas, energy and mining projects. We built the first gas-fired power plant in the country, and took part in the construction of the Toromocho copper mine and the Minera Chinalco copper processing plant.
In the 1970s, we began building civil infrastructure works in the country, diversifying our services over time to include projects in areas such as maritime terminals, docks, oil pipelines and industrial plants.
In the 1990s, we started specializing in the construction of gas pipelines and aqueducts. In 2001, we began work on the 500-km Heavy Crude Oil Pipeline and the offshore maritime terminal. We are also currently providing EPC services at the Shushufindi and Auca oil fields.
When the company first began work in Colombia, the projects were mostly urban constructions. As time went on, we expanded our activity to lay pipelines and aqueducts as well as build hydroelectric plants and mining deposits. We have also successfully completed several projects in the industrial segment and are providing engineering studies and services to large pipeline projects.
Our first challenge in Mexico was the development of the Tamsa steelworks in Veracruz, in 1954. Since then, we have expanded our activities to sectors such as the construction of chemical and petrochemical plants, laying power lines, oil and gas pipelines, building power plants and civil works. From our headquarters in Mexico City, we have directed and carried out almost 80 projects in Mexico, Canada and the United States over the last 60 years, with special emphasis on the oil & gas and energy sectors.
The team line-up is mostly local in origin, and their skills meet all the requirements to handle any type of large-scale industrial project. Present in the country since 1974, we have successfully completed over 40 large-scale projects, including 15 conventional or combined cycle plants and large petrochemical and processing plants.
The Engineering Center was set up in 2010 in Mumbai to deliver detail engineering, including 3D engineering modeling services to develop and build power plants, refineries and oil projects. Around 180 people currently work at our offices covering different HSE aspects in the areas of mechanics, pipelines, electricity, instrumentation, civil and project engineering.
